Look for the character value and limit the search field to subject in either the main OneSearch catalog for education or on of the the education databases. For example, you could use an education database such as Education Database (ProQuest).

There are two ways that you can search for articles by subject in the library catalog:

a) Type your assigned character value as a keyword in the search field and use the drop-down menus under the search box to select "Articles" (under "All items") and "Subject" as the field to search under "anywhere in the record." Click Search. Once the results appear, click on the "Peer-reviewed Articles" limiter link.

OR

b) Click on the "Advanced Search" link to get to that screen. Choose "Articles" next to "Search for." Type your assigned character value as a keyword in the search field and use the drop-down menu under the search box to select "Subject" (under "Any field"). Click Search. Once the results appear, click on the "Peer-reviewed Articles" limiter link.

The resulting list will be peer-reviewed articles that are about respect (or the character value you searched).  For immediate access, you can further limit your search to Full Text articles.  If you find a citation for an article that looks appropriate, and it is not available in full text, the library will request a copy for you via Interlibrary Loan.

You can also use "character development" and "character education" as keyword phrases if your particular value is not yielding much in a search. A good subject term is "moral education".
