"Barriers to Education" is my ENGL 101 research assignment. How can I research this topic?


Start at the SCC library's Education Research Guide.

Use it to explore research resources and see example search terms.

Try these two types of sources first, and ask a librarian if you have questions or want help:


A. Scholarly Encyclopedias

Use the library's online encyclopedias of Education, Child Development, etc. to find background information, statistics, and possible solutions to an educational barrier.

Follow-up references to easily find more sources.


A goldmine of research on Education topics, ERIC is a free article index from the US Dept. of Education.

If you find articles that aren't full-text, contact a 24/7 librarian and ask the library to get articles for you.
