Research

More than anything, the CML is about research. Whether you're writing a term paper, creating lesson plans, or doing original research for a peer-reviewed article, we're here to help.

While most of UNLV Libraries education-oriented materials are found in the CML, Lied Library also has book collections for researching education. These are located primarily on the fourth floor, in the LB call numbers. Print journals can be found on the second floor of Lied Library, but many scholarly journal articles for researching the education-related disciplines are also available online from campus or home.

In order to access and search journal article databases for Education, you must have an updated RebelCard.
