Q. Hello , I'm having a difficult time finding information on nontraditional students for which I am suppose to write a paper on different topics of
Motivational factors in nontraditional students
You can try a number of library databases for this topic. Try EBSCO E-books at http://eds.a.ebscohost.com/ehost/search/basic?sid=a247b2f3-ca2f-4600-904a-65457b37ac17@sessionmgr4003&vid=0&tid=2003EB
After that, I would try searching JSTOR (http://www.jstor.org/action/showBasicSearch) and Sage Premier (http://online.sagepub.com/).
I would start by entering the terms "motivation" OR "motivational factors" AND "nontraditional students" in these searches. Bracket terms of more than one word in "quotation marks." From there, look to the major subject headings in search results for more ideas on search terms.
If you continue to have difficulty you can make an appointment with a librarian for reference assistance by calling 814-824-3305. Please leave a message if no one answers.
