Please note below are databases important to Education: if you don’t see what you’re looking for, see the complete list.

Comprehensive literature discovery tools

BU Libraries Search
Our Search represents by far the most comprehensive grouping of resources we’ve ever been able to provide.  You can find extensive search tips on our site, build an eShelf, and export citations to RefWorks.

Google Scholar
Off-campus users need to set two “Scholar Preferences” to take advantage of library subscriptions: type “Boston University” in Library Links and also choose RefWorks next to Bibliography Manager.


Other, much smaller “core” databases


See our Education research guides to get lists of resources by topic.
