New! PsycCRITIQUES database
(Use it, you'll feel better about yourself)

The Libraries new database gets critical on psychology. Scholars and students in the field should appreciate it.

PsycCRITIQUES™launched in September 2004, is a searchable database of book reviews in psychology. It also includes reviews of some popular films and comparative reviews of books. The database replaces the print journal Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, providing major enhancements, very current reviews, and more content. In each weekly release, PsycCRITIQUES will deliver approximately 20 reviews of psychological books, most from the current copyright year.

There are 3 ways to access information: (1) view the weekly releases; (2) browse by author/editor, book/film title, or publication year; (3) perform a standard database search.

PsycCRITIQUES covers book reviews published from Sept. 2004- present. It includes nearly 5000 Contemporary Psychology reviews from 1995-2004.

Users can access PsycCRITIQUES from the front page of the Libraries webpage, either from IRIS or by following the path: Find Articles: Indexes and Databases: Science, Technology, and Math: Psychology: PsycCRITIQUES.
