For Brandman students who study in the field of special education, inclusion might be a research topic of interest to you. Here is a searchlight focus on how to search for information about inclusive education.

  1. Start on the library homepage. Type inclusive education into the Discover! search box and click on “Search”
  2. The first result you receive should be a Research Starter, which provides background information on inclusive education as well as overview of its applications. Additionally, the bibliography and suggested reading offer a wealth of resources. Inclusive Education
  3. Aside from the research starter, you will see many books and e-books that the library owns on the topic of inclusion.
  4. To refine your search results, select the Advanced Search link below the search box and consider the following options:
    • Add the Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals limiter
    • Place the term in quotation marks: “inclusive education”
    • Change the dropdown limiter from Select a Field to SU Subject Terms
    • Change the date range
    • Add additional terms

As always, Ask a Librarian if you need further assistance.

  1. I am really impressed at how much Brandman University has focused on educational enrichment beyond the classroom. The available workshops for writing and library support are accessable gems that are worth the tiny extra effort, and if properly sought will pay dividends long after.
