Quick Start

Ready to get started?  Here are some important things to know about beginning your research.

  • Find education articles in general databases such as Academic Search Complete, and education databases, including ERIC and Education Research Complete.  Click here for a list of all of the library's education databases.
  • Google Scholar is another good starting point. 
  • Request items not available in UCM's collections from JCKL ILL.
  • Contact me if you have questions!  My contact information is listed to the left. 

Finding Resources in the JCK Library

Organizing your research

Below you will find several videos and links to help you find articles for your assignments and research. BEFORE YOU START, it is helpful to have some way to organize your information as you gather  your citations. If you only need one or two sources, it may not be critical but as you have to do more extensive research it becomes imperative.

At minimum, create a document to save your citations. I recommend including the following information:

  • Citation in APA format*
  • Permalink from the database. This link allows you to go directly back to the article if needed without first going to the JCK Library site and searching for it.
  • Abstract - The abstract is especially helpful for more extensive research to help you remember why you thought this article was important.

*APA CAUTIONwhen copying the citations in ANY of the databases, think of it as just the beginning. Some databases are better at accurate formatting than others. They will usually have all the information but the order, capitalization, italics, etc., may not be correct.
