It may help to begin by gathering background information on this topic. You may do this via a search on the Web, or at the Newspapers link on the library home page. Getting background will give you names of specific programs, or types of programs, that exist. Using that information will give you better keywords to enter into the library's databases.

When you are ready to begin searching for articles on this topic:

  1. On the library homepage, under Subject Guides, select the Education guide.
  2. Choose either the Education Source or ERIC database.
  3. Enter your keywords.
  4. Once you have search results, you can click the Scholarly (Peer-Reviewed) Journals checkbox on the left to eliminate all the non-scholarly articles from your search results. You can also narrow it down by publication date so that you have only articles published in the last 2 years, or 5 years, or whatever your assignment calls for.
