Searching Tips

Search CWU Libraries to locate books, videos, and a selection of articles on a variety of psychology-related topics.

Books not available at the CWU Libraries may still be available from a Summit Library, or through interlibrary loan (ILL).

  • For specific psychology subjects, use the most direct terms for searching (e.g. schizophrenia, child development, etc.)
  • Try a keyword search and add: AND psychological aspects
