How do I find . . . ?

Peer-reviewed journal articles?

Use One Search or a specialized database and then limit your results to "peer-reviewed." The articles and databases tab above provides access to the most useful specialized databases for education. Alternatively, if you want to know whether a specific journal title is peer-reviewed, use Cabell's, which is also listed under the articles and databases tab above.

Full-text articles?

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

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.

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.

Educational tests and assessments?

Select the Mental Measurements Yearbook  under the articles and databases tab above. This print/online series reviews commercially available tests and surveys. It contains descriptions and reviews to many current instruments such as DIBELS and Accuplacer. To locate actual instruments, use a specialized database (such as PsycINFO, ERIC, or Academic Search Premier) to retrieve articles where the instrument is provided in the appendix.
