For students who have selected the special education and learning disabilities topic in the IDS100 class, one of your assignments is to locate this article using keywords in the History Reference Center Database.  The suggested keywords are provided in the assignment and they are:

special education, special schools

  1. The first step is to locate the History Reference Center database in the library.  Click on the A-Z Database List link on the left side of the Library Homepage and select letter H from the alphabet list at the top of the page.  The History Reference Center database is listed there.  Click on the link to go to that database.

  2. Next, try some searches in that database using the suggested keywords.  We recommend quotes around phrases to hold the two words together and combining keywords with Boolean operators like AND or OR.  The Effective Search Techniques portion of our Introduction to the Shapiro Library Guide has more information on the best way to search our databases.  For example, try “special education” in quotes in the History Reference Center search box and you will see the “Children with Disabilities” article listed near the top of the results.
