About the Education collection

Education is a vast topic encompassing everything from the philosophy and history of education to neuroeducation and education data science, from early childhood education to higher education, and all areas of the world. Questions of social justice, equity, inclusion, policy, technology, and much more are of interest to education researchers, and we collect works on all of these topics primarily in English. To help researchers, I've created a wide variety of topic guides, but feel free to contact me for help with research, finding information, or using tools such as Zotero. I meet with classes, groups, and individuals in person or on Zoom. Other collections in the Education Library include the curriculum collection (PreK-12 textbooks, children's books, young adult novels, and science kits), historical textbooks and curriculum materials, and historical college catalogs (both U.S. and international).
