This database offers the world's largest and most complete collection of full-text education journals, and encompasses an international array of English-language periodicals, monographs, yearbooks, and many unique sources that were never previously available, covering all levels of education--from early childhood to higher education--as well as all educational specialties, such as multilingual education, health education and testing.
Fiction and non-fiction book reviews and recommendations especially helpful for elementary through junior high students.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
ILL allows you to obtain items not owned by Criss Library, including books, articles, and microfilm. Some materials are more difficult to obtain due to lending restrictions determined by the lending library.
Most libraries will not lend entire journal or magazine issues, archival materials, or newspapers in print format. Popular fiction and recently published books are also difficult to obtain. Because textbooks are in high demand and hard to obtain, we will no longer be able to fill ILL requests for them. There are a number of online sites where you can borrow textbooks for an entire semester for a small fee.
ILL books take on average about 10 days to arrive. Articles usually arrive in less than a week, but typically take two to three days. Turnaround time depends on the material requested.
Rare items may take 6 to 12 weeks to obtain.
Most Document Delivery requests will be filled within 1 to 2 business days.
Books and other physical materials are available for checkout at the Circulation Desk. Article requests will be delivered to you electronically.
Both ILL and Document Delivery articles will remain uploaded to your account for 30 days.
