Finding Articles and Research Reports

The following VCU Libraries databases should be of use in finding articles on community enhancement in general, and on community partnerships in particular.

Sample search strings are listed below:

"employee training development" OR "employee training program" 

"training development" OR "curriculum development" will get you a broader literature search.

You might also consider "worker development". "Curriculum management" is another consideration.


Think tanks collectively study virtually all issues of any importance to policymakers. This customized Google search produces results from only think tanks. Think tank reports can be excellent sources of background information and they often will be sources of both sides of an issue.
