This is a brief guide to approaching the history of childhood and the history of education. This first page provides access points to a selection of reference materials (i.e., dictionaries and encyclopedias) as well as suggestions for journal databases. See the "History of Education" and "Childhood in US Primary Sources" for suggested primary source materials (i.e., photographs, government reports, and more).
Your local libraries have excellent monographs and anthologies located in O'Neill library as well as through the BC libraries portal. Try searching for books (only books) through the WorldCat library system to see if we have what you need. If we don't, you can order material through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
For a selection of excellent journals and some e-books on various topics in global history, we recommend a few databases. Remember to explore these database "advanced search" options for date and other modifiers before you run your searches.
