  • EDUCATION SOURCE searches ALL EBSCO education resources, including an Education FullText Backfile that has coverage btw 1929-1983, the current version of Education FullText and ERIC.
  • ProQuest's SocialSciences Premium is an OUTSTANDING Resource!  In my opinion, it's even better than SOCIndex, as it includes Social Sciences Abstracts, Social Services abstracts, PILOTS (PTSD database) and has thorough coverage within the areas of politics, sociology, social services, anthropology, criminology and education.
