ED 275: Foundations: Parent/Child Relationships: Books


To search for books, use the OneSearch box on the library homepage (or below) to conduct your search.  Then use the Location filter in the left-hand column to narrow your results to either Book Collection - 4th floor or Reference Collection - 3rd floor.  FYI the default is to search SMSU's print and electronic collections.

Keywords to Try

You might start with specific keywords for your culture in your MnPALS search, but if you don't have luck - don't give up!

Try using combination of broad terms that fit this assignment such as

family, families (or use the truncation search = famil*)

immigration, immigrant (or the truncated version immigra*)

culture, cultural (or cultur*)

parent, parents, parenting (or parent*)

education, educator, educate, educates (or educat*)

Citation Shortcut

Like the article databases, OneSearch also provides a citation shortcut. When you have a book displayed, look for the " (quotation marks symbol) to see the shortcut.

Sample Books & eBooks

These are examples of books and electronic books that might be useful for your research. Remember, you might only be using a chapter or section of a book.
