Education Research

Use this guide to find articles, books, reference sources and more for your research in education. The guide focuses on online resources, but also includes selected print titles. This guide highlights the main resources; it does not contain all of the materials in the library useful for education research. For additional resources, visit other relevant library guides, search the library's online catalog, or consult with Susan Johnson, UHM Social Sciences Librarian.

Featured Databases for Education

Read this first.  Use the suggested article databases to search for journal articles by subject. Often the full text of the article will be immediately accessible in the database you search. Sometimes, however, the database only provides a citation (article title, journal name, year, etc.) for the article. If you have only a citation, determine if the library has the journal that contains the article you want by following the steps to find journals (in the box to the right).

See More Databases for Education for additional resources.
