NEW Education Research Guide
on Libraries Website

The Libraries are pleased to offer a new resource for education scholars and students that merits an A+ in a host of categories.

The Education Subject Research Guide, designed to reflect the instructional priorities of the Rutgers Graduate School of Education, was developed by Rutgers social sciences/education librarian Patricia O’Brien Libutti with assistance from Graduate School Associate Dean Stephen Barnhardt. Some pages in the guide were developed from chapters on digital resources prepared by librarians around the country for the forthcoming book: Digital resources and librarians: Case studies in innovation, invention, and implementation (ACRL , P. Libutti, editor).

Special features of the new Education Research Guide include:

  • Information literacy tools for education students provides tutorials from other universities, with permission, on Boolean logic, Internet evaluation, literature review, and other topics;
  • Digital EDLAB is a repository of resources educators can use such as lesson plan archives, student sites, articles on copyright in the classroom, virtual field trips, professional development links, and more;
  • Topical resources on administration and urban policy covers issues such as education law, history and philosophy of education, statistics, and standards;
  • Topical resources on educational psychology address subjects such as counseling, instructional design, qualitative methodologies, and tests and measurements;
  • Topical resources on learning and teaching provides curriculum links for practitioners.

Users can access the Education Research Guide from the front page of the Libraries website, by following the path Subject Research Guides / Social Sciences & Law / Education.
