Library and Statistical Help

As a Psychology concentrator, you will have access to an extensive collection of books and journals relevant to psychology in the Lewis Science Library. Moreover, you can use the Princeton University Library homepage to search databases such as PSYCHINFO, PubMed, Web of Science, Lexis Nexis Academic, Mental Measurements Yearbook, PEP Archive (Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing), Scopus, MIT’s Cog Net, etc.; as well as the Online Catalog, and numerous other information retrieval systems. Many databases and journals are also available electronically and can be searched and read full-text from any computer on campus or through VPN or proxy service when off campus.

Additionally, Meghan Testerman, the Psychology librarian at the Lewis Library, is also available to help you with library research. Meghan has also created a helpful guide for Psychology concentrators that covers things like finding literature and APA Style.
