Finding Articles

Library databases can contain many types of documents and information.  When researching Education topics, that might include original research articles, government reports, statistics, encyclopedia entries and curriculum plans to name a few.  Some of the more popular databases for Education topics are listed under Suggested Library Databases to Get Started on Education Topics.  Other more specialized resources are listed below in the Additional Education Databases section.  If you're unsure where to start, please contact a librarian for some suggestions.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar is another option to find scholarly articles, though it lacks many of the search features of library databases.  To get the most out of Google Scholar, be sure to configure it to look for links to the full text of articles.  Please refer to the Configuring Google Scholar handout below for assistance setting that up.
