Welcome to the guide for Psychology!

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in Psychology. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty in Psychology.

I am available for instruction to all levels of Psychology Courses, and welcome the opportunity to do so! Please contact me if you would like to schedule a session. I am also available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to Psychology. You may also contact me to suggest items for purchase.
