    How do I find . . . ?

    Peer-reviewed journal articles?

    Use One Search or a specialized database and then limit your search to "peer-reviewed." The tab above provides access to the most useful databases for education topics.

    Books and ebooks in education?

    On the library homepage, use the Catalog to search for books and ebooks by topic or title. Ebooks will provide a link. Print books will have a call number. Use the library maps to find the location of a call number in the library.

    Educational tests and assessments?

    On the library homepage, under “Databases,” use the Mental Measurements Yearbook, which is a database of tests and surveys. It contains descriptions,  reviews, and links to most current tests such as DIBELS and Accuplacer.  If you want to find a test instrument attached to a published article, use a database. Then add a keyword that describes a method, such as “survey” or “quantitative.” When doing a search for a test in PsycINFO, add the word “append” to find articles which include the test used. In ERIC or Academic Search Premier, add a word such as “survey” or “questionnaire.”

    Mezzanine A?

    Many of the education books are located on Mezzanine A, which is accessible from the Lyceum side of the building. Ask at the circulation desk next to Starbucks for directions to the stairway to the Mezzanines.

    Full-text articles?

    If you locate an article with no PDF or HTML full-text available, use the "Find-It" link to see if a digital copy is available in another database or if the library owns a print copy. If neither option is available, submit a request for the article from Interlibrary Loan.
