How to Search Online

Helpful Search Tools

When using library databases, look for limiters labeled full-text. Once that box is checked, all results will be full articles, not just descriptions of those articles.

It's also helpful to look for limiters labeled scholarly, peer-reviewed, or academic. That will narrow your results to be only scholarly journal articles.

When you're ready to search, head over to the ERIC database and try these tools out.
