This guide highlights early childhood education resources available at Brandeis, tips for effective research, and more. Please feel free to email or book an appointment with our Education Librarian, Zoe Weinstein (email@example.com), if you have questions about these resources or need help with your research.
Our library recently started a picture book collection, which includes many award-winning titles. Books will continue to be added to this collection throughout the year. The collection is located in the Info Commons area of Goldfarb Library near our recreational reading collection.
Books are searchable by title in OneSearch. You can also use the advanced search feature in OneSearch to narrow your search results by the location "Main Library Juvenile Literature Collection."
When searching in a library database or library catalog, it's helpful to identify key concepts or search terms. The following search strategies can be used in our library catalog, Library OneSearch and in most of our library databases.
AND, OR, NOT:
Phrase Searching: Put quotation marks (" ") around search terms to search for them as a phrase. For example: "early childhood education".
Truncation (*): The asterisk (*) replaces any number of characters and will find all forms of a word root. For example, educat* will find educate, educator, education, educating, etc.
Grouping Keywords: Use parentheses ( ) around your search terms to group them together. For example, the search ("lesson plans" OR activities) AND kindergarten will return results that reference either lesson plans or activities for kindergarten.
Use our document delivery service to request a scan of a book chapter, journal article, or other item from our print collections. We'll scan and send you a PDF of your requested item.
