I regard the library databases listed here as key resources for the subject of education. These EBSCOhost databases act as indexes to many thousands of journals and some include other sources, such as books and conference papers.
These library databases index journals from across a range of subjects, so you may find them useful if your research spans a number of disciplines.
To explore the full range of databases that the Library makes available to you, use the A-Z List of Library Databases.
Have you tried the library catalogue? I recommend it as your starting point for books, as well as reviews of books. Alternatively, why not get some ideas from one of the Oxford Bibliographies Online? In each commentary by an academic expert about current scholarship, you will find recommendations for the best readings available in each discipline, including books, chapters and websites. Currently, I am subscribing to the following bibliographies: Childhood Studies, Education, Linguistics, Philosophy and Psychology.
I welcome your suggestions for new books to support your research, whether you are on campus or at a distance: email your recommendation to the Library. Let us work together to ensure that the Education book collection continues to develop and reflect the Department’s activities.
Did you know that you can create a catalogue alert for new library materials that match your research topic? Just sign in to the library catalogue, run a search, select Save query and then go to My Favorites to set an alert for your saved search.
The Library has created a permanent display of well-being and health books that have been bought with funds from the Library and another professional service team, Widening Participation. The well-being collection is a really useful resource for all of us, so please do read more about the collection in our blog post and view the list of all the titles, some of which are available online.
