To find articles on this topic, go to our A-Z Databases libguide, linked below. Select the Education tab to see a list of linked databases that have information on your topic.

When off campus, you will have to log in with your last name and COM ID. 

A couple of good databases to try are the Professional Development Collection and ProQuest Research Library

For both, use the phrase "school uniforms" , and include the quotation marks. They tell the database to search that exact phrase.

For the Professional Development Collection, after you run your search, choose the full text option on the left under the Limiter section. You can also adjust the publication date if you want recent articles.

 If you need to narrow it down more, click on the Subject Heading, then the Show More link to check off the relevant subjects.

For ProQuest, use the same search phrase and check the Full Text box under the search bar. You will see similar limiters to the left of your result list (publication date, subject, etc.). 

I'm including How To libguides on ProQuest and EBSCO Academic Search Complete, which is very similar to the Professional Development Collection. They have search tips and info on obtaining and correcting citations.
