Credo Reference Trial Database, until April 30

Credo Reference contains the full text of hundreds of reference books, covering many major topics. It also includes audio pronunciation files and art, science and medical images, in addition to atlas images of places and geographic features throughout the world. The many related entries are pulled from the entire collection of reference works, not just from within the same source.

Try topics such as the brain, global warming or a notable person, such as Jean Piaget.  And let us know in the Comments what you think.

The trial ends April 30.

New psychology encyclopedia online

Falvey has acquired the 2010 online edition of The Corsini Encyclopedia of Psychology. The four-volume set covers articles from ABA and ABAB designs to Z-Score. This may be useful for background information on topics such as the brain, classroom behavior, coping behavior or positive psychology. The images may be enlarged by clicking on them. And the references at the end of an article often include sources published in the 2000s.

csa_logo_left1The CSA interface is familiar to many on campus who have used databases such as PAIS or Sociological Abstracts. In fact, you can search many of the CSA databases simultaneously, if you wish.

Access PsycInfo through the Databases A-Z list or via the Psychology Subject Guide.

To begin, enter your search terms at the initial search screen and then scroll down to limit your search in many ways, such as language, age ranges and methodology. And, as an extra plus, you can export your marked citations directly to RefWorks, according to the 6th edition of APA style. (more…)
