Where Should I Begin?

The amount of information available, as well as searching for and sifting through that information, can be overwhelming.  Use this guide as you would a map; it'll help you find what you're looking for more efficiently.                           

Often when beginning to research, you'll need a broad overview of your subject--some  background information, statistics, definitions.  Find this under the Background Info tab. 

For scholarly journal articles, search either Education Full Text or ERIC.   Find these databases--as well as many others--under the Articles tab. 

For more breadth and depth of coverage, use books.  Under the Books tab, you'll find WorldCat, which will give you access to close to 2 billion records from over 72,000 libraries. 

Check out the Search Well tab for tips on how to search efficiently. 

Need help?  Ask a Librarian.  Multiple ways of contacting us may be found under the Get Help tab.

Need guidance in citing your sources?  The Cite tab will provide information on how to best do that.
