Interested in strengthening your APA database searching skills? Join us for the next round of APA PsycInfo webinars designed for students, faculty, and anyone else who wants to learn more about how to search APA PsycInfo more effectively!
The 30-minute APA PsycInfo – Advanced Search session explores a few of the added-value fields in APA PsycInfo and using them to uncover much more than journal articles. Search demos will demonstrate how to identify what research is happening at which institutions; finding new journals in which to publish your work; information about tests used in related research; and potential funding opportunities for your project.
Search tips and strategies covered in both sessions are relevant to all search platforms — APA PsycNet®, EBSCOhost, Ovid, and ProQuest.
The sessions may be attended separately, but we encourage you to take both if you are interested!
You can register with GoTo Webinar for one of the following times:
Join us this spring for a Beyond Subject Searching webinar – designed for librarians and other expert users of APA PsycInfo. Whether you’re looking to expand your search skills or just need a refresher, we hope you’ll join us!
This 45-minute session includes a behind the scenes look at the APA PsycInfo record structure and live search demos.
Learn how to use APA PsycInfo for more than just locating articles, such as identifying the types of research being done at a particular institution and finding journals in which to publish new work.
We’ll also search for information on grants and sponsorships, on tests and measures, and we’ll highlight our Record Structure and Field Guide — tools that can help you become your library’s APA PsycInfo expert.
