Staying Current: Search Alerts

One way to keep up with new research on your topic -- or a favorite professional journal -- is to create an alert within a database, such as EBSCO's Education Source. This way, you'll get an email when new articles are added to the database.
Look for the Share button in EBSCO and the Save search/alert link in ProQuest. Select how often you want the database to check for new materials and how long you want to receive updates for up to one year. Slick, huh?!

Books: Print & Digital

Looking for ebooks? Search the Library catalog for your subject then limit your search to ebooks, or search one of the ebook subscription databases available through the Doane Library.

These are just a few of the reference books about education research the Library has available. Use the catalog to find others.
