Research the teaching and learning of science using Education Source

Use Education Source (formerly Education Full Text) to find articles and more on all education topics, including adult education, continuing education, distance learning, government funding, multicultural education, social issues, and more.

 

Education Source contains a substantial number of citations on the teaching and learning of science. Start your search using thesaurus terms such as "Public Health - Study & teaching," "Physics - Study & teaching," etc. Narrow your search by adding such terms as: case study, evaluation, and so forth. The EBSCO search interface easily allows for applying limits to your search such as a date range, or limiting to peer-reviewed content. You can quickly change the sort from relevance to date; other sort options are also available. Education Source includes the full text for over 1,800 journals, with UC-eLinks to access the full text of more, as well as full text for more than 550 books and monographs, numerous education-related conference papers, and citations for over 5 million articles.

What's in *your* cosmetics?

Ever wondered what's in your cosmetics and if your cosmetics are safe? Now the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) can help. CDPH has created the California Safe Cosmetics Program Product Database to help answer these questions.

 

The California Safe Cosmetics Program Product Database is a new, searchable cosmetics safety database. It was created for both professionals who work with cosmetics and the consumers who use them. It can be searched for specific products, companies, or chemical ingredients. You can also learn here about how chemical exposure can affect health.

The database was created in response to California's first-of-its-kind cosmetics law (PDF). This law requires cosmetic companies to report products containing ingredients known or suspected to cause cancer or reproductive harm. The California Safe Cosmetics Program is a part of the Occupational Health Branch of the CDPH.
