Research Guide for courses in Counseling in Education

Welcome to the School Counseling Video Tutorial

Hello students in the School Counseling degree program. Sending you all good wishes.

The videos and activities below have been created to help you be able to identify appropriate databases and search techniques to search for articles on your topic. You will also learn how to sign up for an Illiad (Interlibrary Loan) account so you can request articles not available in our databases. As Lehman students you should be able to access the articles you need without paying a fee.

Good luck with your research. Feel free to email me ( with any questions.

With warm regards,

Alison Lehner-Quam
