LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SCIENCE DATABASES
LARKS (Librarian and Researcher Knowledge Space) is the American Library Association's resource for researchers of all levels of experience in school, academic, and public libraries.
We subscribe to an electronic version of the "International Encyclopedia of the the Social Sciences." Use the link below to access this resource. There are three sections in the Encyclopedia that are particularly effective for describing the different research methodologies. After accessing the Encyclopedia, try these three searches - one for "methodology," one for "methods, qualitative," and one for "methods, quantitative."
There are many credible websites available to help with your writing assignments. Wayne State Univerisity has a "Graduate Writing Resources" website, and the University of North Carolina and Purdue University have useful writing sites as well.
