Education Databases

The following Library databases contain journals and scholarly articles focused on all aspects of education, from early childhood to higher education. These databases may look slightly different but generally have the same features.

Finding an Education Article

Below is an example of searching in the Education Source database. Since this is already an education database, you don't have to use that word in your search.  

Notice that the boxes are checked for Full-Text and articles. That way, the search results will only include complete articles. Checking the box for Peer-Reviewed will ensure that you only see peer-reviewed, professional journals.
