Academic Research in Education

What's on this Page

This page will give you instructions for finding and accessing materials available at Moye Library. Many of our resources are available online, so you do not need to come to the library to use our resources. This page will show you how to find books, articles, and streaming video, as well as how to do a basic search and an advanced search of library databases. 

Most of our videos are available through NCLive. NCLive is accessible at some public schools and public libraries in North Carolina. These videos are well-suited to education.
