Webinar Alert: Fall PsycINFO Sessions for Librarians

Our fall semester lineup of webinars for librarians kicks off on September 19. If you’re looking to expand your search skills, or just need a PsycINFO refresher, we hope you’ll join us! We offer two different one-hour sessions, both of which include live search demos.

Behind the Scenes of PsycINFO – In this session, we review the structure of APA Database records, covering the elements of the bibliographic citation, controlled vocabulary and indexing. We also go over value-added fields, such as classification codes and tests and measures. Sample searches demonstrate these fields, as well as the online thesaurus and keyword searching.

Beyond Subject Searching in PsycINFO – This session builds on Behind the Scenes of PsycINFO, and covers a few ways you can use PsycINFO for doing more than just locating articles. Among other things, it includes a review of searching for information on tests and measures, and how to identify the types of research being done at a particular institution. (Taking our Behind the Scenes of PsycINFO webinar first is not required, but this session does assume that you are familiar with the platform you use to access PsycINFO and with the basics of searching the database.)

Sessions run through early December.
