Relevant Journals and Books

Relevant journals in educational history

It's not necessary to search specific journals directly, because databases like ERIC and America: History and Life will let you search all of them at once, but browsing can be helpful for inspiration. The links below will take you to ERIC results for each journal, and individual articles will have links to full text.

Examples of relevant books

These are just examples of books from LibrarySearch that may be useful to some of you. It's not a comprehensive list, of course, but if you click on the link, you will see Library of Congress subject headings that may help you find related books.

Useful subject headings

These are Library of Congress subject headings that you can use to search LibrarySearch more effectively.
