Trial access to PsycBOOKS

Ulster Library has arranged a free trial to PsycBOOKS for one month.

“PsycBOOKS contains full text (PDF) of scholarly book titles published by the American Psychological Association (APA). The service offers over 900 titles, including 100 out-of-print books from 1950-2002, approximately 300 archival resources in psychology, and the exclusive electronic release of the APA/Oxford University Press Encyclopedia of Psychology with over 1,500 authored entries. PsycBOOKS is updated with new releases of APA books and books originally produced by other publishers on a monthly basis”.

You can access the PsycBooks from the A-Z Databases listing on the Library & ICT tab on the Portal and off-campus access is available.  The database is hosted by OVID and so is on the same platform as PsycInfo and Medline.

We would be very keen to gather your feedback on this resource and so have made a feedback form available at http://library.ulster.ac.uk/electronic/trialfeedbk.php?eisno=771

The trial ends on 10/11/16.

If you have any queries please contact your campus Life and Health Sciences librarian on science@library.ulster.ac.uk
