Library Resources

Faculty and students in the Department of Psychology have direct access to thousands of books and professional journals in psychology and allied disciplines through electronic databases provided by the UHH Library.  There are numerous full-text databases that are relevant to psychologists, such as Psychology and Behavioral Sciences, PsycNet, Science Direct,  etc.  For currently available databases please go to the UHH library web site and check the alphabetized index as well as a list of databases by the subject area.  In order to find out whether there is access to a particular journal or not use the UHH Library title search engine.  Besides electronic journals, we are also subscribed to various e-book databases, such as PsyBOOKS, and the ProQuest full-text dissertations database.  Additional electronic resources available through the UHH library include reference indexes, such as PsycInfo, Ingenta and ERIC, which provide reference to articles and books in psychology published since the ninetieth century and limited access to the full text of some documents.  Also, explore a guide to resources in psychology.

1. One needs to have a valid UHH ID number and password to access most of the electronic databases.
3. The library subscriptions and contents of each database can change anytime.  Thus, titles can be added to or removed from the list of available sources.
4. Depending on the journal and database, access may be limited to articles published within the last 10-20 years 
5. Many publishers provide electronic copies of their printed articles with a 4-12 month lag.  Therefore, some recent publications may not be available
6. Some publishers provide electronic preprints of the upcoming issues.  Thus, it may be possible to obtain copies of articles in press.
