Hello Ms. Williams,

I was able to come up with some articles that are about the general subjects that you gave me in Academic Search Complete, but since I am not sure what the context of your research is about, I do not know if they would be helpful or not. I can tell you how I found these articles though, which may help you get a better grasp on the searching that you are doing. I did just type in the search terms that you gave me in your previous email in the first search bar, and in the second search bar, I typed 'Psychology'. After that, on the left side of the screen, one can limit the results, so I limited the search to Scholarly(Peer Reviewed) journals. You can use the same search techniques in PsycInfo as well. For some of the searches, I got over 1,000 hits. Another big thing you can do it pay attention to the subject headings or subjects, which are in the article record. By using the subjects, you may be able to find more suitable search terms for the databases. When it comes to Google Scholar, one great thing that can be done is to link Criss Library with Google Scholar. Here are instructions on how to do that: If we do not have the article, you can try to get it through Interlibrary Loan. As long as you have an Interlibrary Loan account set up, you can type the information that you have into a request form, and then the folks in Interlibrary Loan will take it from there! You can find the information on setting up an Interlibrary Loan account here:

If you need further help with finding articles on psychology, you can contact Melissa Cast-Brede, she is our psychology librarian. Her email address is I hope that this will help with your searches, and if not, let us know! 

Thank you!
