Elementary Education: Research Help

Welcome to the Elementary Education Research Guide!

This guide is to help support your Elementary Education research by giving an overview of what Elementary Education resources are available in the library, along with some quick tips on how to find and use them.


The Sherratt Library provides access to a number of databases on a wide range of subjects. Below is a list of databases with content related to Elementary Education:

Other Online Resources

Journals and Periodicals

Although many of the journals we have in the Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, there are times when a print copy is the way to go. Below is a list of journals we have in print and electronic formats. See titles for links to each journal. (Note: Print copies of journals are housed on the first floor of the Sherratt Library, organized alphabetically by title.)

Books and Ebooks

Here at the Sherratt Library, we use the Library of Congress classification system (call numbers) to organize most of our items, including print books and e-books. Below is a general list of call numbers that relate to Elementary Education (they can help you find items on the shelf).
