Psy 971/5 Library Support - Welcome!

FALL 2020 - Keep up to date on library services via the Coronavirus (COVID19) page.

As a Psychology concentrator, you'll be learning new ways to think about research and ask questions about it, and eventually, you'll have the opportunity to produce it yourself. This guide is designed to help begin a transition from your first research experiences to the more specialized methods of information-seeking that an academic discipline requires of you. 

Psychology isn't something you'll only hear about in the classroom, of course; to help you keep up-to-date with recent experimental breakthroughs, we've linked to news feeds:

  • APA (American Psychological Association)
  • APS (Association of Psychological Science)

You may find the inspiration for your next project -- or your senior thesis -- by monitoring current trends and emerging issues. 

Please get in touch with us when questions come up.  Good luck with your work!
