Hi, I am the subject librarian for the School of Education. I am available for research consultations and class visits to help you learn more about the Libraries ' resources and specialized research in education. The best way to contact me is via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org . If you are local, we can set up a time to meet, and if you are a distance education student, we can arrange a time to talk on the phone or even Skype if you would like!
Below is a curated list of resources - it is not exhaustive but it is a very good place to start and I can help you if you are not finding what you need. Distance education students can find additional information just for them about interlibrary loan and troubleshooting access issues here: https://library.ndsu.edu/guides/services-distance-students
I look forward to hearing from you,
Beth TwomeyHead, Research and Instruction RM 113 (701) 231-8141 Are you a faculty member? This page is for you: https://library.ndsu.edu/guides/school-education-information-faculty
Terms to know:
Many studies attach full-text of their testing instruments as an appendix to their final document. These can often be found through database searches. Do note that many measurement tools are protected by copyright. If planning to use a tool for research or practice, you may need to get copyright permission or pay for a license. Talk to your librarian for further information.
Try searching for your topic AND your instrument
