Education Research Guide (Doctoral Program): Databases

This guide has information on databases, journals, books, writing & citation, and library help.

Did you know?

The Library offers over one hundred databases and online resources covering research topics, clinical tools, reference sources, news sources, and more. Coverage includes medical topics, education, and many other subject areas.

The Library Databases page allows you to search by type of database:

  • Subject Area: Select database related to your discipline, such as nursing or education
  • Database Type: Narrow your databases choices by focus, including anatomy resources or databases that include ebooks
  • Vendor/Providers: You can limit databases to particular database companies, such as EBSCO or ProQuest

Looking for Full-Text?

The databases will not always offer you the full-text of articles, but the Library offers Interlibrary Loan (ILL). This is a service where you can submit an online Interlibrary loan (ILL) request on Clio, and Library staff will get the article for you.

If you are looking for full-text of an article you found outside the Library (like on Google Scholar), you can use the Library's Article Linker tool to quickly find full-text or request via interlibrary loan. 

If you need further assistance or have any questions regarding ILL, email or call us at 707-638-5317. Please see here for more information on ILL and using Clio, the Library's interlibrary loan service.

Need Help Searching?

If you would to schedule a one-on-one meeting with a librarian to get help with your search, you can email one of the Education librarians to set up a meeting.
