Research guide to sources in Psychology


Further to Quebec government and university directives, McGill campuses are currently closed. As a result, all library branches are closed until further notice. Library staff will continue to provide virtual reference during service hours. I will also be available via email and virtual consultation. For more information about the closure, please visit our COVID -19 | Library Closure & Service Disruptions FAQ.


This research guide provides access to useful sources in the field of psychology. 

Useful resources:


  • The primary database for psychology. It covers professional and academic literature in psychology and related disciplines, including medicine, psychiatry, nursing, sociology, pharmacology, physiology, and linguistics. 
  • Quick reference guide - how to search PsycINFO


  • A database of psychological tests produced by the American Psychological Association (APA). Most records include information about purpose, construct, reliability, validity, population, permissions, and more.
  • Quick reference guide - how to search PsycTests


  • A  full-text database that provides electronic access to thousands of scholarly and professional titles published by the American Psychological Association (APA), including the most recent titles in psychological and behavioral science, plus a substantial backfile of classic and historic works.
