Last Updated: Jun 19, 2020     Views: 78

You can start your research on this topic using the search box on the library's homepage. Enter:

"learning styles"

To narrow down your results, try adding additional AND statements to the end of your query.

Examples include:

"learning styles" AND visual

"learning styles" AND tactile

"learning styles" AND personality

Try thinking of synonyms or related terms that you can use in the search. You might also search for the different learning styles specifically:

  • auditory
  • interpersonal
  • intrapersonal
  • kinesthetic
  • logical
  • visual

Education Source

We also recommend searching a subject specific database, like Education Source. You can use the Advanced Search feature and select where to search for your term to help narrow your search. Advanced Search will typically be a link found at the top of the search page or near the search box.

Copy and paste the search below into the search box. The two letters before the search terms (i.e. "SU" or "TI") is a shorthand way of searching specific areas of an article (like subjects or the title) to narrow the search. In the future, you can use the Advanced Search link to select fields that you want to search.Try the following searches:

TI "learning styles" 

SU learning AND "types of learning"

Use the limiters on the left side of the results page to limit by characteristics like source type (magazines, newspapers, trade journals, etc.), publication date (last five years) and more.

Evaluating Your Results

Keep in mind, not all results will be entirely relevant. You will need to scan the titles and read the descriptions to select the best articles for your topic. For additional information on searching in the University Library, check out the following:
