Counseling Research Guide

This guide will help you identify quality information resources for this field of study.

Let's Begin ...

Even a small library, like the one at Doane University, contains a lot of information on topics in the field of counseling. You just need to figure out how to get to it! This guide was created to take a little of the mystery out of using the library's resources as you begin to do research on these topics.

Finding Background Information

If you're starting from scratch and don't know much about your topic, finding a good reference article can get you started in the right direction. It also might help you narrow the focus of your topic. Of course, Wikipedia can be helpful as a starting point but as a professional counselor you'll want to go beyond a questionable resource such as this.

The electronic counseling reference resources here are just a few of those available to you through the Doane Library. Use the catalog to locate more -- OR go to Gale EbooksEbook Central (ProQuest)or EBSCO eBooks to do topic searches throughout the entire collection of electronic books, which include reference works.
