Elementary Education Resources: Getting Started

Library guide for elementary education majors.

Where do I begin?

Important things to know when beginning your research

  • Check the library! Use this guide to find resources for your subject.
  • Start early! The more time you have to search through the numerous resources we have available the more time you will have to compile your research.
  • Be prepared! Bring your flash drive to save your work and have your syllabus handy so you can double check the professor's requirements.
  • Take notes! Highlight important passages from journal articles, tab sections in a book, keep a "research journal" that documents how you found your material.
