Psychology: Identifying Books

Use Books/Media / OneSearch! to Find Books

To identify and locate books and other Library resources in psychology use the Books/Media tab of OneSearch! located on the Rod Library Web page.  To ensure that you use appropriate subject terms when you search Books/Media, use the Library of Congress Subject Headings thesaurus which is accessible electronically through the Classification Web (choose the LC Subject Headings option) or in the printed Library of Congress Subject Headings volumes located at Rod Library Reference Collection Z 695 L696. Sample headings include:

  • Adolescent psychopathology
  • Behaviorism (Psychology)
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Consciousness
  • Depression in adolescence
  • Emotions
  • Existential psychotherapy
  • Feminist psychology
  • Neuropsychology
  • Personality
  • Personality disorders
  • Psychology, pathological
  • Psychotherapy—case studies

A Keyword search allows you to search for specific words that appear within the title, subject, or notes fields of the online records. Combine your search words with “psycholog*” to focus your results on publications examining the topic from a psychological perspective, for example, “dance and psycholog*.” Keyword searching is a powerful feature of the Books/Media system, but a thorough search for information on any subject should include searches using relevant subject headings.
