Welcome to the Research Guide for the Counselor Education and College Student Affairs programs in the Department of Clinical and Professional Studies!
In this guide we try to address the usual questions you will have about doing library research. This is not a substitute for getting live research help -- just a reference for you. If you need live research help, scroll down to the embedded appointment request form to meet with one of the education librarians.
There are many places to find articles for Education-related research. We recommend starting the Education databases for most topics. Each database contains different materials so try several databases to get all the resources on your topic. Depending on your topic, you may want to try databases in other fields, like sociology, business, computer science, or psychology.
Library Science Databases (includes school media and information literacy topics)
Many of our subject databases have dissertations listed in them that are specific to that area of study. We particularly recommend the following databases for full text education dissertations. Others you may need to request by filling out the Dissertation form on ILLiad. To find dissertations, go into our recommended databases that cover its discipline and do a search. Then choose dissertations on the left side menu of the results page. Your subject librarian can help you find dissertations on your topic, if needed.
