Impact of Chronic Illness on Development

Library Handouts for Education Students

Acknowledgment

The original version of this class guide was designed by librarian Keith Stanger.

Hello EDPS 325 students!

This guide has resources to help you find the articles you need for your assignment. This page has a link to Google Scholar, which your instructor recommends for this assignment. If you know how to search other library databases, the other databases listed on this page may also be useful.

Finding the full text of articles can be tricky. The Tips for Finding Full Text page of this guide can help with that, especially the second page of the handout  Finding Full Text Articles: The Persistent Method, which has tips for finding full text when in Google Scholar.

Determining if your article is a research article, rather than some other sort of article in a journal, can be challenging. The info on the Is it a Scholarly Article? page may be helpful.

Don't hesitate to ask for help from the librarians. You can get help in-person at the library, via online chat, or with an appointment over Zoom. Options are described on the Research Help page.

Useful Article Databases for this Project

Topic Overviews (useful for some sections of EDPS 325)

Sometimes it can help to first read an entry from a reference source on your topic. These won't count as a scholarly article for your assignment. However, they can be very useful to to help you understand the overall topic and/or to discover specific subtopics that you may want to research.

The Human Diseases and Conditions provides very useful overviews of medical conditions. The Sage database provides high quality reference articles on human development related topics.
