Researching the Literature of Psychology

This guide may help you with your psychology lit review ... Then again, it may not ... But I really hope that it does. When doing a literature search in psychology, keep these three principles in mind:

1. Don't panic.

2. Use the links on the left of this page to help guide your search for articles, books, public Web sites, and so forth. 

3. Don't hesitate to ask for help.

a. You can stop by the reference desk in the library anytime during desk hours without an appointment. Click here for reference desk hours.

b. You can request a more in-depth and individualized research consultation using the research consultation form. Please give us at least two days advance notice for this. Click here for the research consultation form.

c. You can also contact me directly,
