Using this guide

Welcome to the Fielding Library! This guide is intended to help you determine how to best locate materials related to your subject of interest. Use the tabs at the top of the screen to view all of this guide's content.

On this page, you will find links out to general help materials related to navigating our library and discovering content. The following pages will provide database suggestions and guidance on searching for literature. 

Education is a diverse field of study which often overlaps with, draws from, and contributes to many other disciplines such as economics, history, sociology, and more. Faculty recommend that in addition to exploring education-specific resources you consider broadening your searches across disciplines to find more relevant literature and perspectives. The 'Useful Resources' tab will provide resource suggestions and descriptions.  The 'Search Tips' tab will offer further guidance for interdisciplinary research.
