Welcome to “From the Deck of . . .” an irregular series in which we highlight search demos and other information from the slide decks we create for our live training sessions. You can view and download these materials from the APA Publishing Training SlideShare account.
At the ACRL meeting this month, we presented a Lunch & Learn training session covering updates and search tips for APA’s databases.
The presentation covered the recent thesaurus update, upcoming changes to the PsycTESTS database, and features of the My PsycNET platform manager.
Live demos included the following example searches:
- using thesaurus terms
- updating a saved search with the new thesaurus terms
- using PsycINFO’s tests & measures field to find a known test
- searching for appended tests
- PsycTESTS example search
