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 Quick Search page, you will see three search bars in the top left. Above the first one, there is a blue 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. You can find an example search here.
  6. On the results 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.
