How To Find the Information You Need.

Broad Searches: If you want to see large amounts of information - books, journal articles, DVDs and more - and you don’t mind looking at a few things that you might not need, use RTC's OneSearch.

Try OneSearch Now:



Focused Searches: When you know exactly what you need.

  • If you need journal articles, click on the Articles tab above, and learn about ProQuest, CINAHL, and other databases.
  • If you need books, click on the Books tab, and learn how to find books in the RTC Library Catalog, or eBooks in RTC databases.
  • If you need web resources, click on the Web Sites tab. This page lists helpful web sites on many childcare and early childhood education topics.


Not Finding What You Want?

  • Try another way of describing your topic. Instead of "child" try "toddler". Instead of "digital toys" try "learning objects".
  • Think about the age of the material you need.
