ED 605: Research Methods

Researching the Literature of Education

When doing a literature search on an education topic, keep these three principles in mind:

  1. Start your research early.  The Goucher Library has a very good collection of books, electronic databases and journals to support research on Education.  If your research retrieves books and articles that Goucher doesn't have, you can get these materials through interlibrary loan; however, interlibrary loan materials can take a week or two to arrive.
  2. Use the various tabs at the top of this page to help guide your search for articles, books, test reviews, statistics and so forth. See the smaller boxes to the left and right on some pages for useful nuggets of information.
  3. Ask a librarian for help!
