Here are links and brief descriptions of the Library databases that can be used to find articles about education and about libraries.
- ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center
Indexes both journal articles (EJ) and ERIC documents (ED) related to education.
"Documents" include books, research reports, dissertations, conference proceedings and other non-journal sources of information.
ERIC indexes more than 850 education journals with most available in full-text online.
ERIC is available in two interfaces, EbscoHost or ProQuest. (Same content, different search features.) This links to EbscoHost.
- Proquest Education Journals
Indexes over 800 education related periodical titles.
Full text access is available for 650 titles.
- Google Scholar (not a Library database but...)
Access Google Scholar from the Library's webpage so it will link you to full-text articles that are available from the Cheng Library.
Look for the link, Full-Text @ Cheng Library.
Many other full text resources (books, ERIC documents, etc.) are accessible through Google Scholar.
- Academic Search Complete
