NOTE: The Library homepage has been redesigned as of late August, 2016. These tutorials will need to be redone to reflect the changes. However, the databases and how they are used have NOT changed, so I'll leave these links up until I get a chance to revise them.
Here are a few tutorials specific to the UT Tyler Library and its resources. Although the examples used are all from the field of reading, the basic concepts should be applicable to any type of library research in Education. If you have any additional questions, please email me, or if you need a more immediate response, please call the reference desk at 903 566-7343 or chat via the link on the main page of the library. At the bottom right of the homepage see the box "Chat is online."
Doing Basic Research in Education Databases note: Education Resource Complete is now Education Source.
For a quick start, begin with these four resources:
1. For books that you can check out or read online today, go to the Library Catalog.
2. For books that the UT Tyler Library does not own, go to WorldCat, search for a book, and then click on Request from Another Library.
3. For scholarly articles, go to Education Source. This link will actually allow you to choose four education databases (Education Source, Educational Administration Abstracts, ERIC, and Professional Development Collection, and then search them all at the same time.
4. For dissertations and theses, go to ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global.
