If you need to find just a few articles, searching Academic Search Premier, ERIC and Education Full Text (or anyone of the three) will probably be sufficient. If you are a graduate or Doctoral student however, it is recommended that you try Academic Search Premier, ERIC, Professional Development Collection, PsycArticles and PsycInfo (you can search all five together by visiting any one of these databases, clicking on Choose Databases and selecting all of the databases mentioned). Additionally Sage, Academic One File, Science Direct, and Education Full Text should be consulted.
You may access these databases by going to the Library homepage at www.Hofstra.edu/Library > Research Resources (light blue tab) > Research Databases. You will be prompted for your username and password. After entering your username/password, you will arrive at a screen where you can access databases either by subject area or alphabetically by name of database.
