Resources for Psychology Students
Do you have any assignments in psychology this semester? Use the Behavioral Sciences Research Guide to find reference books, databases and academic web sites to help with your assignment. The essential psychology databases are: PsycInfo and Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection which index thousands of journal articles, many of which are full text. Use Annual Reviews for valuable review articles, and try Polling the Nations if you need results of surveys. You’ll also find links to help with APA style.

Quotation of the Week:
“Books are quiet. They do not dissolve into wavy lines or snowstorm effects. They do not pause to deliver commercials. They are three-dimensional, having length, breadth and depth. They are convenient to handle and completely portable.” – Anonymous
