Welcome, Psychology Students!

This resource guide is designed to help you locate Psychology resources for your courses. Most of the original research in psychology is published in the form of journal articles, making databases essential. Books, book chapters, and annual reviews are also viewed as important research tools. Psychology is a highly interdisciplinary field so you may find yourself using medical, science, sociology and education related databases as well as the primary one for psychology (PsycInfo). Professional associations, most notably the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science, play an important role in disseminating information in the field of psychology. If you don’t find what you need, please contact Charlene Baxter
