American Psychological Association's (APA) Third Edition of Library Use: Handbook for Psychology, published in spring 2003, makes readers aware of information resources, gives them the means to locate those resources, and shows them how to use the resources. However, the world of bibliographic research in psychology changes at a furious pace. This Web site addresses the changes occurring in bibliographic research after the book's publication.
This Web site will supplement Library Use: Handbook for Psychology and help keep it current. Criteria for inclusion of content in the Web site will be similar to those used for content in the book. Our goal is to present a selective list of resources of interest to psychology undergraduate students and beginning graduate students.
We will include information such as
- updates to important sources noted in Library Use (Third Edition)
- important new sources
- important new information research technologies and techniques
- links to selected new online tutorials and guides that enhance the content and approach of Library Use: Handbook for Psychology
- hyperlinks to substantial, free, public, online resources. (As a general practice, users will be able to access these links without subscription fees.)
This site will supplement the book, not replace it. Because we assume that users of the site are readers of the Third Edition of Library Use: Handbook for Psychology, topics addressed in detail in the book will not be discussed here unless there are significant additions or changes. Our plan is to update the Web site every six months.
We welcome comments from our readers.
