Education Resources for Extension Instructors

A guide to resources for teaching and research in education for professional administrators and instructors

Using databases

Databases have tools that help you find what you need. When you search in a database, you’ll enter your search terms into the search boxes. The database will search for exactly what you type in. Enter in the terms that are at the heart of what you want to find. For example, if your research question is “Does playing video games have an impact on whether a person is violent,” you would enter these terms into the search box:

  • Video games
  • Violence

Some databases give you multiple search boxes, or let you add more by clicking a plus sign. 

Get it at UC

Get it at UC connects you from a source citation to the resource.

You will be taken to UC Library Search where you can navigate to the full-text of the source OR initiate a request for the source through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

The Get it at UC button will appear in many library databases. Use it to more easily locate or request the resources you need!
