This guide highlights and links to information that I hope will be helpful to you in this course and in your overall program. Feel free to contact me or use our Ask a Librarian service if you have any questions about library resources and services or about your specific research topic(s).
The overall guide provides general information on resources and services for students in education while this course page provides additional information useful for your work in this course.
Here are a few tips and comments that I typically share with students. Below each group of tips I'll include links to the resources or services mentioned.
Additional suggested databases are on the Articles page of the Education guide.
About searching and strategies
For a summary of different search approaches and examples, please see the Strategies for Searching page of the Education guide.
There are two short videos about using the advanced search features and the thesaurus in ERIC that will be informative. These were created by Odum Library at Virginia State University. Each video is about three-and-a-half minutes.
About getting articles, organizing your results, and citation help
For more information about APA style resources as well as information on copyright, fair use, and avoiding plagiarism, please see the Citing & Writing page of the Education guide.
