Using Interlibrary Loan

Organize Your Research

Refworks is a great tool for staying organized while you're searching for articles. It also helps you format your citations and write your bibliography. Sign up for an account with your Fitchburg State University email address to start using Refworks.

APA Style Resources

When using the library's research databases, many (such as Academic Search Complete) provide the option to place the document's citation information into the the style format of your choice when you go to print, save or email it. Remember to select the APA format (or which ever style your professor requires) and you can save yourself some time. For online resources that don't have this option and when citing from print resources, print and online APA Style manuals are available.

Education Databases

The following databases are organized by how relevant they are to your area of study. Core resources are databases that are most likely to have a lot of articles because they are subject specific. Supplemental resources are databases that may have additional articles related to Education, i.e. PsycARTICLES is helpful for finding research on learning disabilities.
