FSU Libraries' Guide to Psychology Resources
Ted Chaffin and I would like to introduce ourselves as the library liaisons for the Psychology Department.
*If you are a Faculty member, we can:
- locate and request psychology library resources.
- visit your class to teach effective library research skills and services.
- provide tours and in-library workshops to your students.
*If you are a Student, we can:
- offer one-on-one consultation sessions to help you with your psychology assignments
- demonstrate how to locate resources (journal articles, tests, etc.)
- direct you to other services such as RefWorks to help you manage your APA citations.
Have a great Spring 2013!

Another way to get an unavailable book, fast!
Can't get access to a book you need because it is checked out or FSU Libraries' doesn't own it?
What is UBorrow?
"UBORROW allows you to request materials directly from participating libraries within Florida’s state university system. This unmediated borrowing service increases your access to the collections of the other universities in Florida and delivers more quickly than standard Interlibrary Loan."
