ECE 272 Online- Teaching in a Diverse Society Venkataraman: Library Help

Research Guide Purpose

This research guide is a tool to help you look for information for your online class ECE 272. 

You have an assignment which may require library research to support your work.   

For some of the information, Google is the right search tool to use to find the information you need, for example, the information provides by school districts, government agencies, and non-profit organizations (for example Head Start).   

For other kinds of information, current news, reports, research about child development (in journals and books), often using library databases prove to be a time-saving choice that allows for quicker access to published reliable information sources.

What library services and resources are available to online education students at Skyline College?

Skyline College online education students can access library resources, including articles, research guides, reference sources, e-books and streaming videos, from any computer with internet access. Librarians can be contacted by phone, email, chat, and text.
