Finding Journal Articles

Electronic databases are purchased by the libraries for your research use. To find articles in education journals, browse the Education databases. From home, you will need the 14 digit bar code from your student id/library card.  You may get a photo ID/library card in the LSC-Kingwood Library. If you are not on campus, distance education students may order a card online.

We recommend the Advanced Search optin for better results. If you find an interesting article that is not full-text, please email the correct bibliographic information along with your contact information to the Reference Librarians, and they will see that you get the article. There is some overlap of articles in the databases. However, we encourage you to use more than one. All are excellent sources.
