Science/STEM Education: Books & Encyclopedias

Information resources for STEM education research.

We have an extensive collection of books (print and ebooks) that cover STEM Education and related disciplines.

UC Library Search

UC Library Search, accessible from the search box on the library's homepage, helps you locate books, film, music, maps, and various other materials at the UC San Diego Library and beyond. It also contains a limited number of online journal and newspaper articles. You may search by keyword, title, and author, and filter your search to what is available online, or peer-reviewed articles. You can also place an interlibrary loan request through UC Library Search for materials at other UC campuses or libraries worldwide using your Single Sign-On credentials.

UC Library Search does not include all the content to which the Library subscribes. To extend your search for articles, use databases like Web of Science or Education Source.

The Roger and Melvyl catalogs were retired on July 27, 2021.

Ebook Collections

Publisher collections that are strong with math and science education books. You can browse the titles or search full text of the books (and journal articles if available).

Encyclopedias and Handbooks

You can find more encyclopedias in the Library catalog, and as well as additional math or science-specific encyclopedias on the subject guides
