Higher Education Databases - Find Articles, etc.

For specific results on "teaching in an academic field",  select a database from your academic discipline's [Subject Guides]. The databases are listed in the order of likely best results.

  • ERIC Education Resource Information Center
    ERIC should be your first stop when researching topics about higher education teaching & learning. ERIC contains more than 1.3 million records and links to more than 323,000 full-text documents dating back to 1966.
  • PsycINFO
    American Psychological Association’s (APA) database for abstracts of scholarly journal articles, book chapters, books, and dissertations, is the largest resource devoted to peer-reviewed literature in behavioral science and mental health. Full-text articles from PsycARTICLES are linked within PsycINFO so you won't have to search two separate databases.
  • Education Full Text
    Education Full Text includes in-depth coverage of special education and more than 100,000 controlled and cross-referenced names of educational tests. Subject coverage includes adult education, multicultural/ethnic education, teaching methods and much more. Some full-text
  • Teacher Reference Center
  • Academic OneFIle
    Great source for full-text academic, scholarly articles
  • WorldCat Dissertations
    An excellent source to identify theses and dissertations on a specific topic. GRCC, like most community colleges, does not actively collect theses and dissertations, so you will need to rely on RaiderLoan for access.

Department Liaison Librarians

Every academic department and many college initiatives and service departments have been assigned a librarian.  The liaison librarian is designated to be an information specialist for your department.   Work of the liaison librarian may include:

  • attending academic department meetings to better understand your curriculum needs
  • creating and sustaining Subject Guides supporting your department
  • handling collection development (selection & weeding) of the print, audiovisual media, and e-formatted materials making up the library collections supporting your department
  • working on outside accreditation efforts (please contact your librarian one year prior to accreditors visits)
  • one-on-one and/or department information literacy sessions for faculty
  • advising on copyright issues
  • creating information literacy materials for classes taught within the library's instructional program
  • assisting departmental committees with research-related needs

If your department does not have a liaison librarian, please contact the Reference Desk at 616-234-3868.
