Education Research Handbook.
Hitchings, Donna, Ed.; Wilson, Thomas C., Ed.
This handbook is designed as an introduction to the process of library research in the field of education. To illustrate the process, a sample topic is developed from a broad concept through a well-developed topic for a research paper. Following an overview of a successful research strategy, the chapters are organized in the order of a typical strategy: (1) encyclopedias, handbooks, and dictionaries; (2) library catalogs; (3) Library of Congress call numbers; (4) determining locations of books; (5) indexes; (6) locating journals and microforms; (7) finding government documents; (8) finding statistical information; (9) computer searching; (10) trouble-shooting; (11) evaluation of sources; and (12) formatting the final bibliography.
