International Education: Welcome

Library Collections

About this Guide

The IOE Library is committed to developing its international holdings on education issues. These issues are explored in a number of library collections including: 

  • The Comparative Education collection.
  • Journal collection.
  • The Main Education collection.
  • Reference collection.
  • Special Collections and Archives.

This guide explores our international education resources. We also have provided links to websites and databases that may be of use to students and researches exploring education in specific countries.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, don't forget that UCL has multiple libraries and there are additional libraries and archives in the Bloomsbury area. For more information on accessing other libraries, check out the Using Other Libraries LibGuide.
