Finding Books

Books in the library are organized by call number according to the Library of Congress classification system which groups items by subject, so you can often simply browse the shelves. Here are some relevant subjects and their call numbers:

Psychology BF 1-990
Social Psychology HM 1001-1281
Developmental Psychology BF712-724.85

Course Reserves

Does the library have textbooks? Yes, the library has some current textbooks, but not all, on reserve. It depends on whether your instructor placed materials on reserve for student use.

Search CityCat by course or instructor. CityCat will show which library has the course material, whether it is available and also the length of time it is available for check out. Below is an example of a textbook we have on reserve for PSYC 40. 

Remote access to databases & eBooks

When you are not on campus, you will need to enter the barcode number on your student/staff ID in order to access Films on Demand.
