This is a guide for students in the College of Education to find some general resources and links to tutorials. Many departments and programs in the College of Education have specialized guides highlighting resources of particular use to students working in those areas. In addition to these departmental and programmatic guides, some classes have research guides to help students with specific assignments for those courses. Students are encouraged to use one of the guides linked below if appropriate.
Department and Program Guides:
There are many places to find articles for Education-related research. We recommend starting the Education databases for most topics. Depending on your topic, you may want to try databases in other fields, like sociology, business, or psychology.
Provides news, information, and jobs for college and university faculty members and administrators, serving as a major news service for US academic affairs. Excellent resource for recent trends and events in higher ed. All content from 1989 to present is available.
Many of our subject databases have dissertations listed in them that are specific to that area of study.
Proquest Education in particular has a ton of dissertations. ERIC also has a large number of dissertations indexed in it. Some you will be able to access right away by clicking the Full Text PDF button. Others you will need to request by filling out the Dissertation form on ILLiad. Whether or not it is immediately available has a lot to do with copyright and library contracts for different databases. To find them, go into the database and do a search. Then choose dissertations on the left side menu.
