Whether you're beginning your program or working on your Master's degree, there are a variety of resources and services to support your coursework.  You may need to find case studies as you analyze a classroom scenario, or very specific studies on a teaching method to inform your own action research plan.  Besides education databases, there are databases to support your minor, and even some that give lesson plan and curricular ideas in the areas you teach or plan to teach.

You'll see that there are multiple versions of ERIC, and the one that you'll find most familiar is the one via Ebsco. This is an international database, and allows you to search by educational level, reading audience, and type of source.  In addition to peer reviewed journal articles, it contains a variety of grey literature,​  This infographic shows what's in ERICThis infographic shows how materials are added to ERIC.
