Research Tip from the Education Librarian

Family Day (February 18th) is coming up in a few short weeks. Why not find some classroom and children’s resources on families at the Education Library

1. Go to

2. Click on the WorldCat tab on the home page

3. Enter the term “famil?” into the search bar

Note: the question mark in “famil?” is called a “Wildcard” search. Now the search engine will look for both “family” and “families”

4. Click Search. In the search results you will see a list of links on the left-hand side of the page

5. Scroll down to the Audience box and click Juvenile to retrieve a list of children’s titles on families

6. Scroll down and click the Show more … link. Click Kit to find Educational Kits on families
