Get Started

1. Get background information on your topic from subject encyclopedias written by experts in education. These overviews can also be handy when you're searching for a topic.

2. Search education databases (click box on left) to find scholarly journal articles and SuperSearch to find books and DVDs. Click "Find Articles in Related Disciplines" if your research takes you into areas like psychology and social services.

3. Find data by using the resources in the Education Statistics tab on the left. 

4. Keep track of your sources and generate your bibliography by using a citation manager. 

5. Meet with a librarian  if you need help thinking through your research question and finding quality information. Look for the email and appointment links under my picture. This guide is intended to get you started; it is not an exhaustive list of all Cowles resources on education. Let's work together 1:1, either in person or via Zoom, as you focus and develop your research!
