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.

"eBooks" will take you to a page with links to collections of full-text, digital editions of books that can be searched and read online.

"Videos" will take you to a page with links to streaming video collections containing videos on diverse topics including medical and health-related topics, diversity studies, counseling & therapy, education, and psychology.

"APA & MLA Style Guides" will help you properly format your APA and MLA citations.
