A library research guide created for students in EDFD180, Social, Cultural, and Political Foundations of Education

About Database Searching

Listed in this guide are a number of databases that cover different areas of research and scholarship: legal, education, linguistics.  There is also a multidisciplinary database, JSTOR.

  • In research, we often use academic or library databases to find articles written by researchers and experts in the field.
  • These databases are not free. 
  • If you are using them from off-campus, you will be prompted to log in with your netID and password (true when accessing eBooks as well).
  • We may not own the full-text of everything in each database.  You can use Interlibrary Services to request that items be borrowed from another library.
  • Use Control+F (or Command+F on a Mac) to find your search terms within a document that is listed in your search results.
  • Limit by date as needed.
  • Limit to "academic journals" or "peer-reviewed" journals.
