Popular Assignment Topics: Antibullying Programs in Schools

Here at the library, we take notice when we get asked about the same assignment topic multiple times.  One of those topics is antibullying programs in schools.  Here are some tips on how to do research on these programs.

On the library homepage www.esc.edu/library select Subject Guides.

Select the Education Subject guide. Here, you can learn more about Scholarly or Peer Reviewed articles in the center column.

Look at the left hand column under the heading “Searching for a topic? Use databases.”

You want to select databases here to search for your topic.  I suggest starting with Education Source and ERIC.

In the database, select Advanced Search.  Here you can break down your search topic into multiple keywords like antibullying AND programs. Down below where it lets you limit your search, you can check the box to limit results to Scholarly/Peer Reviewed and then you can hit search.  You can then go through the search results to see which articles are available in our library and fit your assignment needs.

Where is the full-text article?  Is the date for the article fairly recent and you don’t see a link to view the full-text? The article may be too new to be available online yet.  Instead, do you see a link to Full-text Finder?  Click Full Text Finder to search the rest of the library to see if we have the article elsewhere in our collections.
