I regard the library databases listed here as key resources for the subject of education. These databases act as indexes to many thousands of journals and some include other sources, such as books and conference papers.
Index to selected journals, conference papers and book series across all subject areas
Web of Science Core Collection consists of the following databases:
Science Citation Index
Social Sciences Citation Index
Arts and Humanities Citation Index
Conference Proceedings Citation Index
Book Citation Index
Emerging Sources Citation Index
Current Chemical Reactions
Index to evidence-based social science research, including grey literature
This database simultaneously searches databases including AgeInfo, ChildData and Social Care Online. Many of its records refer to reports, legislation, local/national government documents, organisations, policies, press coverage and service user knowledge. Its focus is on applied research and practice. HMIC search results include 'links' buttons,
Some of its links take you to the full document but with other results (i..e. the non-academic documents), you may need to then search Google. To discover further organisational literature, refer to SPS/Further Resources: https://library.bath.ac.uk/social-policy-sciences/further-resources
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.
