4th and 5th Floors of Library are Quiet Floors

Did you know that the library has quiet floors?  The library's 4th and 5th floors are "quiet floors."  These are floors in which talking in whispers is acceptable but anything above that should be done elsewhere in the library.

If you have any questions or concerns about the quietness level on the 4th and 5th floors of the library, please leave a comment in the suggestion box on the first floor, on this blog, or email the library director, John Pollitz. 

PsycTESTS: Finding test instruments just got easier!

McIntyre Library now offers access to PsycTESTS courtesy of a private donor.   PsycTESTS, produced by the American Psychological Association (APA), is  a repository of psychological tests and measures, including thousands of actual test instruments and test items that are available for immediate download and use in research and teaching. It is likely to be useful for those in fields such as psychology, psychiatry, management, business, education, social science, neuroscience, law, medicine, and social work.

To access PsycTESTS, visit the library’s Databases by Title page and navigate to PsycTests.

Please contact the library if you have questions about this or any other library resource. Enjoy!
