This guide will introduce you to resources that you can use when researching and studying Psychology.


Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior. Psychologists seek to understand, predict, and influence behavior on a wide range of issues that affect human functioning.

In this guide you will find a list of recommend resources which encompass print and electronic library resources as well as resources from the open web. Since research in psychology may involve other disciplines (such as education) you may need to consult resources and study guides for those fields as well. 

This guide only scratches the surface of the resources that are available so please don't hesitate to consult with a librarian for additional support. You can make an appointment with a librarian here:
