Academic Databases

There are many databases with information relevant to special education and visual impairment. Here are some of the best places to start your search.

For assistance choosing a database or for any other questions, send an email to the Subject Librarian or use the Ask Us 24/7 chat service.

If you need an article that UND does not provide full text for, request it for free through the interlibrary loan service.


Your research on special education and visual impairment might include research from medicine, counseling, and psychology; try the following databases:


Google Scholar can be a great resource when you're trying to find related articles for your topic. It's also helpful if you're having difficulty finding resources on a topic where there might be a limited amount of available published literature or if you've found some good articles but they're not the most recent publications.

Access Google Scholar from Quick Links on the Library homepage. In Google Scholar, paste in the title of an article you've found. Look for the Cited By link underneath the article info. For the example below, 88 articles have cited the Oakleaf & Kaske article since it was published in 2009. By clicking on Cited By, you would see the information for the 88 articles. Look for the PDF or FindIt@UND button to access the articles. 

Pro-tip: Don't see the FindIt@UND button next to an article you need for your research? Get it through our Interlibrary Loan service.
