Answer

Start in the Library Databases: from the Library Homepage click on Databases by Subject under SEARCH COLLECTIONS, then select "Education" from the drop-down list and click on "Apply".  Now you have a list of databases that contain journal articles and other materials related to your topic.  For instance - use Credo or Gale Virtual Resource Library for background information about your topic. 

Have a look in Opposing Viewpoints in Context  - Click on "Browse Issues" on the grey menu bar, then scroll down the list of issues to find and select "Homeschooling."  You will see a page with all kinds of sources - pro and con argument essays, newspaper and magazine articles, statistics, reference articles and media.  Remember, you will need your student ID and password to access databases when you are off-campus.

The JCC Libraries also subscribe to many education journals and magazines in print, for instance, Early Childhood Education Journal and YC (Young Children). You can find 12 months of issues in the Current Periodicals shelves in the library.  For journals and magazines older that one year, look in the Back Periodicals shelves.

Don't forget to look at books!  Use the JCC Libraries online catalog (Click on SEARCH FOR BOOKS from the Library Homepage) to search for books on your topic.

I have also included a link to a library guide called "Introduction to Research" that will help you to focus your topic and search for resources.

Good luck with your paper, and please contact us if you need further help!
