Psychology e-Resources

Take a look…

PsycBOOKS is a comprehensive source of chapters from thousands of scholarly and professional books published by the APA and other distinguished publishers, indexed with controlled vocabulary from APA’s Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms.

In this e-resource, you can access the following:

  • approximately 55,000 chapters in PDF from over 3,500 books
  • nearly 2,600 classic books of landmark historical impact in psychology, dating from the 1600s
  • more than 1,500 authored entries from the APA/Oxford University Press Encyclopedia of Psychology
  • digitized content from the Archives of the History of American Psychology (AHAP) collection

PsycTESTS, produced by the APA, provides access to tests that are relevant to psychologists and professionals in related fields such as psychiatry, management, business, education, social science, neuroscience, law, medicine, and social work. It is a unique database providing descriptive summaries, full text, and relevant citations on the development and assessment of tests and measures that can be used in research and teaching. Each record includes data on the scope of the test, test implementation, a high-level overview of the test’s development, and reliability and validity data (when available). International in scope, PsycTESTS provides access to an increasing number of tests in languages other than English. While focused on contemporary instances of test use, coverage dates from 1910 to the present.
