WorldCat is the union catalog of all libraries in the huge library network called "OCLC." Most items are cataloged using the same Library of Congress subject headings used at Dartmouth. Items not available in the Dartmouth collection can be requested via interlibrary loan: DartDoc & BorrowDirect
Relevant titles fall throughout our collection, but the L call number section houses a sizeable amount of material:
LC - Special aspects of education
LC8-59 (Forms of educ.) ; LC65-245 (Social aspects of educ.) ; LC251-951 (Moral and religious educ.) ; LC980-1099 (Types of educ.) ; LC1390-5160 (Education of special classes of persons)
LD-LG - Individual institutions
LD (US) ; LE (Americas other than US) ; LF (Europe) ; LG (Africa, Asia, Australia + Pacific Islands)
Related areas include: BF 309-499 (Psychology - cognition & learning); BF 712-724 (Developmental psychology); HQ 768-799 (Child development & adolescence); KF 4100-4260 (Education law - US)
Our general stacks collection is large enough to make browsing a bit unwieldy. Browsing the reference collection may prove more useful.
When searching the library catalog, pay attention to subject headings assigned to relevant titles. Refining your search using the same subject heading terminology may yield more precise results.
Note that many items have a subject heading (e.g., Education) further qualified by one or more subheadings:
Common education-related subheadings
Note: Each of the above subheadings can be further qualified with:
Headings specific to grade-level
Although the Library of Congress headings for specific grades do exist, Dartmouth has very few items using those headings. Headings follow the traditional US educational system, e.g. "Kindergarten", "Eighth Grade (Education)", or "College Freshmen"
Additional specific headings
There are an enormous number of related headings. If your preferred terminology doesn't match a heading, quite often there will be cross-references to other terms, or your search results will fall in a related area:
