Slides from the ALA Midwinter Lunch & Learn Now Available

The slides from our Lunch & Learn presentation at ALA Midwinter 2016 are now available on our Slideshare account. We recommend downloading the slides and viewing them in PowerPoint, as the presenter notes area includes additional information for each slide. The session included:

  • Brief updates on PsycARTICLES, PsycBOOKS, PsycTESTS, and PsycTHERAPY
  • Information on a recent update to the Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms
  • A section on the growth of PsycINFO, which recently surpassed 4 million records
  • A review of updates made to the APA PsycNET platform over the last several months
  • An overview of training and support materials

During the session, we presented four live search demos. Screenshots for these are included in slides:

  • EBSCOhost: Using the Thesaurus
  • APA PsycNET: Sort search results by Times Cited
  • OvidSP: Using the Author Affiliation field
  • ProQuest: Searching for items that have been reviewed in journals indexed in PsycINFO

  1. I would love to have seen the slides from the presentation, but they’re mounted at Slideshare. While I have a LinkedIn account I am not interested in allowing Slideshare to have access to my entire LinkedIn life, including messages, etc. If you can provide access to this content in some way that does not compromise my privacy, I would be glad to see it!
