Introduction to Education Research

Doing research can be a challenge for novice doctoral students. This tutorial provides a framework for education research by walking the tutorial takers through the research process. It helps students to familiarize themselves with resources and services available at the University Libraries. Tips and examples for developing research statements as well as conducting effective searches are also included. In addition, by utilizing database tutorials, students will learn how to navigate different online databases to find their research materials.

This tutorial is a collaborative effort between Dr. Jane Agee, School of Education, and Yu-Hui Chen, University Libraries. It is a work in progress, and we welcome your input and feedback. If you would like to participate in this project, please feel free to contact either of us.

If you need research assistance, please do not hesitate to call the University Library Reference Desk at 442-3553 or contact the Bibliographer and Outreach Librarian for Education, Yu-Hui Chen, at ychen@albany.edu.
