Think of the main concepts of your topic and key them into the search box. For example, an effective search would be China Early Childhood. Try variations on your terms, such as child care or kindergarten to retrieve more results.
Not every country or region has been equally studied in the area of early childhood education. Countries which have been prominently studied include China, Japan, Italy and Great Britain. You may find it difficult to find an entire book on the first country you select. If you do not find a book on the country you select, check the books on reserve as there may be a chapter on your country in one of these titles.
If you need to expand your search beyond the collection here at the NECC libraries, simply select ALL HELM Libraries from the drop-down menu in the library catalog and repeat your search. You can request books from the entire HELM consortium using your library card number and password. The items you request will usually be delivered to the NECC libraries in three to five business days.
