Library Databases for Education Research

These databases have collections that focus on education.

Although these databases focus on other subjects, they might also contain research related to education topics. 

Get Started!

Step 1:   Try the search terms "education" (or "secondary education", "special education", etc.) AND the topic you are researching.

   For example"early childhood education" AND "family involvement."

Step 2:   Take note of any alternate search terms as you are researching. Alternate search terms can help if you reach a dead end.

   Alternates: "elementary education" AND "parental participation"
