This guide is meant to give an overview of materials and resources available at USC Libraries for researchers in Education. Use the tabs on the left to find useful resources for finding articles, background information, and more.
Ready to jump in? Here are the top things to know about starting your research in Education:
Article literature is expansively indexed by the two main databases in the education field, ERIC and Education Source. Start searching by clicking on their names.
Statistical information is often central to educational research. Visit the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to find data on all areas of education
Managing all the materials you find is a key to success. Use a tool like RefWorks to save, organize and output all those citations.
ARES (course reserves) is where your professors post assigned class readings (except for those in your textbooks).
