Education Research and Resources

This guide introduces the most useful resources for research in education and provides some advice about conducting research in education.

Research in Education

This guide will help you decide what services to use to locate the research materials you need.

As part of your coursework in the College of Education, you will need to consult articles from scholarly or professional journals or magazines; you may need to use books and e-books; you may need to request journal articles or books from other libraries.  And you will be working online most of the time.  

Whenever one of the libraries is open, there is someone who can help you with your work! Hours of operation for the Arrendale Library are posted on the library’s web site, and you can always find telephone numbers in the footer of all Library webpages, including this one.

If you need less immediate assistance, you can use the Ask a Librarian! service to chat with us or send us e-mail requests for advice.

APA Style for Making Citations

All College of Education faculty require the use of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th edition, as the standard for making citations and references in your papers. Here is a detailed guide to that Manual from the Purdue University Online Writing Lab, the Purdue OWL. You can also contact any Librarian for assistance.
