Getting Started

When doing research in child and family studies there are a variety of sources available to you.  The first step is selecting a topic and figuring out what types of sources of information you will need to use for your research.

If you need scholarly and/or peer reviewed articles, you will want to start with a database. If you need background information, a good starting point would be a subject encyclopedia. 

If you need help figuring out where to begin you can always contact me.

 

Electronic Reference Sources

Online encyclopedias are a good starting point for research.
