Subject databases

ERIC is the most important subject database for pedagogy, the science of education. Remember to set the limits peer reviewed and/or articles if you only want hits on scholarly articles.

Web of Science is also a useful database for pedagogy. This is an interdisciplinary database (sciences and social sciences) where topics of education are only a small part. Therefore it is smart to use more general and "broader" keywords when searching.

For other relevant information resources, see the subject.


ebrary - hits for "child welfare" or "child protection" (e.g.)

Suggest books

If you miss a scholarly book you would like the library to have, please send me an email with the book's title and author(s), and also if you want to borrow the book when it arrives at the library.


The courses I give to students are planned and organised in collaboration with the academics at your department. If your are a student and would like more/other courses about search strategies, database searching or reference management tools, please contact your teacher, and s/he will contact me.

Courses for academics will be made of order; please contact me.
