Finding Books

It's a good idea to start by searching for relevant books on Philosophy of Education. Begin with:

a) The Catalog

Try some Keyword(s) in Subject searches. For example, enter the following search terms in the search box below:

Education AND "United States" AND Philosophy

 Search the Catalog by Keyword(s) in Subject


Go to the Catalog's Advanced Search for more search options.


b) Worldcat

This is a vast catalog of books and many other types of resources in thousands of libraries worldwide. When you locate a work not available at BC that you'd like to access, click on the FIND IT/Inter Library Loan option.


c) Potentially useful for finding books on aspects of philosophy and philosophy on education is John R. Shook's A Guide to Philosophy in the Library of Congress Classification.
