Education: Home

Getting Started


The following databases are frequently used to find articles and book chapters from the Education literature.  The content of Education Research Complete and ERIC is primarily K-higher education research and professional trade articles.  Academic Search Complete covers all disciplines (including Education) in less depth, but it also contains content from current popular media sources. 

Background information on Education topics

The first two links here are databases that will help you to more fully understand a topic you are researching in terms of varying points of view in culture, politics, and the media.  Your topic may or may not be covered in these databases, so give them a try, but move on to other sources if necessary. 

The encyclopedias listed below will help to contextualize some very broad or very complicated issues in the field of Education research and practice.
