Drexel University Libraries is pleased to announce changes in electronic resource offerings in psychology. Effective July 1, 2013 access to the core resources in psychology published by the American Psychological Association, PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, PsycBOOKS and PsycCRITIQUES will move from the existing Ovid platform to EBSCOhost. In addition, the Libraries will be adding APA’s newest resource, PsycTESTS to our electronic collections.

Research and resources in psychology play a growing role in nearly every academic discipline studied and researched at Drexel. In recognition of the importance of psychology across the University, the Libraries this past spring evaluated current offerings in psychology both for content and delivery, testing offerings from a number of different vendors. Resources from the American Psychological Association are unmatched in scope and quality, and with this change in access to the EBSCOhost platform we seek to make them more accessible to the University community.

APA describes PsycTESTS as "a repository for the full text of psychological tests and measures as well as a rich source of structured information about the tests. A wide variety of test types are included in PsycTESTS, including achievement and aptitude tests, intelligence tests, tests of cognitive functioning, occupational tests, personality tests, and so on." We anticipate that it will be of great value to all researchers in health sciences.

The new EBSCO implementation of the Psyc databases can be accessed via the link from our homepage, from our database listings, or from our catalog.

Your Health Sciences liaison librarians are available to answer your questions about these changes and to assist with orientation to the new electronic environment, including assistance with alerting services:

From Monday evening of this week through Wednesday morning, the Libraries experienced problems with a number of our online systems, including the Group Study Room Reservation system. We are discovering now that some reservations made earlier in the week may have been lost from the system. If you made a reservation earlier this week -- even if you received an email confirmation -- please log in at https://www.library.drexel.edu/spaces/login to confirm that your reservation is still there.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that may be caused by this unfortunate occurence.


To assist in diagnosing problems with wireless connectivity in the New College Building, IRT has asked that anyone experiencing difficulty connecting to the wireless service in Hahnemann Library, or elsewhere in the building, provide information to them about the problem by completing the form at http://www.drexel.edu/irt/networks/wireless/wireless_trouble_report/.  Your assistance in improving wireless service will be greatly appreciated!
