CQ Researcher is a good place to start.  See for their overview of student debt issues.

For other sources, see our Business Research Guide at

Under "General Business Databases/Journals," choose "ABI/INFORM Complete" or "Business Source Complete."

I searched for:  student debt

After you search, look for the "Source type" option on the side of the screen.  If you want to see only research articles, choose "Scholarly Journals" or "Academic Journals."  If you want to see only news articles, choose "Newspapers" or "Magazines."  See example 1 below.

If you only want to see recent analysis of the student debt crisis, look for the "Publication date" option and choose a recent range of date, e.g., 2010-2012.  See example 2 below.

You may also want to try our Education guide at, particularly the ERIC database.

Other sources that could be helpful are:

Chronicle of Higher Education
See Then choose "Chronicle of Higher Education."
Search for:  student debt
Or search for: student loans
Or search for: "financial aid"

Inside Higher Education
Use the same searches listed under "Chronicle of Higher Education"

Condition of Education - Undergraduate Grants and Loans
Statistics on undergraduate receiving student loans, grants, etc.

If you have any further questions, or if you want to explore some different kinds of sources, please let us know and we will try to provide you with additional suggestions.
