Search Terms & Tips

When searching for both books and articles, use subject headings and keywords to identify items of interest. 

In the library catalog, search for:

  • "Educational Accountability -- law and legislation -- United States"
  • "Educational law and legislation"
  • "Education, Higher -- law and legislation"  
  • "Universities and colleges -- law and legislation"

You can use these same terms when searching for articles in an article database such as HeinOnline, Gale or EBSCO, or in an article index like LegalTrac (GALE) and Legal Source (EBSCO).
