Education Scholar References

Need help finding references?
Should you need additional assistance in locating references directed at specialty areas, please email the McGoogan Library AskUs desk or call 402-559-6221.

The McGoogan Library of Medicine maintains a RefWorks account that provides up-to-date citations of foundational e-learning references.

We've also created a Generic IRB Form for Educational Research document to help e-learning developers complete the UNMC IRB online application specific to exempt e-learning educational research. It provides IRB-approved language and selections, which may be utilized or modified to complete a new online IRB Protocol.
