Diversity in Education Search Tips

If you are researching Education among a certain demographic group, use both Education databases, such as ERIC, and specialized databases pertaining to your group of interest. You can find many of them in the Area and Cultural Studies Subject Guides.

Use each database's thesaurus or subject headings list to identify the best wording for your topic. For example, ERIC uses:

  • African American children (NOT "Black children") 
  • Disabilities (NOT "disabled")
  • Homosexuality, or Sexual Orientation (NOT "LGBTQ")
  • Religious Cultural Groups (NOT "religious groups")

At the same time, other databases, such as PsycINFO, Race Relations Abstracts, and Sociological Abstracts, may use different terms.

Using ProQuest Databases (including ERIC, PsycINFO, and Sociological Abstracts)

Using EBSCO databases (including Race Relations Abstracts)
