Child Development Guide

This guide contains resources and information relevant to child development courses.


Child Development Reference Guide

Welcome to the South Plains College Library's guide for Child Development programs!  Here, you will find information on finding and citing sources for your assignments.  This guide is intended to make your research easier and more effective.  As always, if you are in need of more assistance, feel free to contact a librarian!

"Finding Resources" will cover the basics of conducting research for articles, books, and websites.  When in doubt about where to look for resources, check that page for research tips!

"Articles" will contain links to the databases that are most likely to be useful for child development assignments.

"Books" will allow you to search the Library's catalog, and will also provide links to useful items.

"APA Citation Method" and "MLA Citation Method" will help you to properly format your MLA and APA citations.

Finally, "Course-Specific Material" will provide information specific to individual classes. 

A Note to Faculty

We are also always open to ideas for new guide content.
