Finding Articles in Databases

Core Education Databases

The first three databases contain articles from education-related scholarly journals and professional publications.

Linking Research

The next database is a citation index. It is not exclusively on education, but it is useful because it links together articles that cite each other and are therefore likely to be on similar topics.

Secondary Databases

The last databases cover subjects that intersect with education and may be beneficial for some topics.

Interlibrary Loan (Articles)

If you cannot locate a journal article, use the Interlibrary Loan Forms.  A librarian will locate a library that owns the material and will send for what you need.

Before placing a request, check the Citation Finder to make sure Beeghly does not have a copy.
