Education Research Guide: Getting Started

A guide to using the library and conducting research for students taking classes in the Department of Education.


This guide was created to support students doing research for their Education courses.

Please take a look at the resources I've collected, and don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions or run into any problems!

How to Use this Guide

Each of the tabs at the top of the page contains information, videos, and links to help you with your research assignments. You can begin exploring on your own, or look below for a description of the content available on each tab!

The "How do I do research?" tab gives you some information related to choosing a topic for your research paper and developing a research process. It also contains a video that explains literature review assignments.

The "Articles" tab contains links to useful library databases, choosing search terms, information about peer-reviewed articles, finding the full text of an article, and video tutorials related to using library resources.

The "Books" tab details how to search for books and e-books in the library, using books in your assignments, and requesting books the GC library doesn't have.

The "Websites" tab has a huge list of useful websites for education students, a link to our video database, information on evaluating websites, and a link to our guide for locating primary sources.

Finally, the "Citing Sources" tab takes you to our citation guide, with links to MLA, APA, and Chicago citation style information. It also has links to resources like citation builders and citation software.

Hi everyone!

We're here to support you in any way I can! If you need help during any point in your research process, please get in touch. Librarians are available to answer questions via email and phone, or we can set up a time to meet one-on-one in person or through video chat.
