A great way to look for this topic is to look in both education and psychology databases. One easy way to do this is to use a feature in our online library called the "Ebsco Quick Search."

1) Go to the library home page.

2) In the top middle-right there is a heading titled "Collections." Click on this heading and then select "Databases."

3) On the next page, click on the link labeled "Ebsco Quick Search," which is underneath the heading "Featured Resources" in the middle of the page.

4)Once on the Ebsco search page, you will see three search bars in the top left. Above the first one, there is blues link that says "Choose Databases." Click on this and box will appear on your screen with a list of databases that you can search from. Make sure that only these three databases are checked-- "Academic Search Complete," "Education Research Complete," and "Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection." Then click on the yellow "Ok" button at the bottom.

5) Now, type in "Erik Erikson" in the first search bar, "development" in the second, and "education OR teaching" in the third. Then click on the green search button. You may want to experiment with these search terms by trying different variations. Here is an example search.

6) On the next page, you can choose only "Full Text" articles by selecting that option on the left of the page in the margin. The articles found will then be available to be read online.
