PSYC: Psychology: Home

This guide is intended to help students with research assignments about psychology.

This research guide is designed to help students studying psychology find information for their assignments. Review the basics of research, learn about the library's collection, and see other suggested resources. Use the tabs to see pages with guidance about using and locating different kinds of sources. Tabs and pages marked with professor names provide helpful guidance specific to their classes or assignments.
