Education: Find Books

This guide provides information and resources for students in education-related fields, including elementary, secondary, and special education.

Many relevant materials can be found in the L call number range, but because Education is such a wide and inter-disciplinary field, useful resources can also be found in other subject areas, including sociology, child development, and psychology.

HERE is a link to a list of the subject headings in the library's collection.  

The pdf below includes a detailed breakdown of the Library of Congress' L Class:

CREDO Reference: Education Topic Page

CREDOReference is a digital collection of reference books (encyclopedias, handbooks, dictionaries, and more) in all subject areas. It is searchable and available online through the library's list of Digital Resources. The Education Topic Page will give an overview and include some key reference titles in education, (e.g. The Encyclopedia of Special Education or The Encyclopedia of Child Development). The Concept Map offers a visual map of some of the areas covered by the different sources.
