Education Collections

The Library has a rich collection of education materials, with emphasis on the areas of urban education, school reform, educational psychology, literacy, reading theory and practice, and the history of education.


Off-campus Access

Almost all Library databases can be accessed from off-campus. The easiest way to do this is to use links from the Library website. You will then be prompted for your CNetID and password to authenticate yourself as an authorized user.

If you find sources through Google Scholar or other search engines, you may not automatically get access to Library resources. IT Services has created the ProxyIt bookmarklet for these situations.

Getting Started

These are the most essential databases for articles and books in education. See the articles & journals tab on this guide for additional databases.

  • ERIC  
    (1966-) ERIC is the largest education database in the world. Along with indexing articles from thousands of journals, ERIC also includes a substantial collection of other education materials such as reports, curricula, and conference papers (ERIC Documents).
  • Articles Plus  
    Search for articles, books, reviews, and more from hundreds of databases and over 40,000 journals. Very good for education topics.
  • Education Abstracts  
    (1983-) Indexes English-language periodicals, books and yearbooks in the field of education. Although not as complete as ERIC, its coverage includes about 79 journals not indexed by ERIC.
  • Education Index Retrospective  
    (1929-1983) Covering a century of research, this database provides cover-to-cover indexing for an international range of English-language periodicals and yearbooks. It includes accurate, detailed, cover-to-cover indexing of some 500 historical periodicals.
