I'm generally on campus weekdays 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and at other times by appointment. I especially try to be available for 'drop-in' help during breaks and lunch hours on class days; look for me at the little desk in the main area of the library. Drop by; or call or email to schedule an appointment at a time that's convenient for you. I also do a lot of consultation by email, if that's what works better for you!

Information for Alumni of Applied Psychology programs
When you graduate from Antioch, you will no longer have access to our subscription resources or library services [alumni have limited borrowing privileges for books, but that's about it]. However, there are other ways to keep up with what's going on in your field.
Membership in professional organizations usually includes subscriptions to their main publications, or reduced rates for their publications and access to other resources. Check out the following websites for membership benefit information:
Although our subscription databases with full text links are not available to alumni, there are several options for keeping up with what's been or being published.
- Non-APA-members can purchase 24-hour access to PsycINFO for $11.95 [as of May 2011].
- PubMed is the database of the National Library of Medicine. It indexes many journals which cover the field of psychology and related areas.
- ERIC is primarily an education database, but it does cover some topics related to psychology and counseling. It also provides links to the full text of many documents. (In fact, ERIC has a link to the full text of a 400-page document titled "Family Counseling and Therapy: Major Issues and Topics.")
- PILOTS [Published International Literature On Traumatic Stress] is a free searchable database of citations for worldwide literature on traumatic stress. It doesn't contain any full text but can be an excellent source of citations for articles that could be obtained through your library or possibly elsewhere online (depending on the source).
- Google Scholar tries to limit search results to citations from scholarly literature. It definitely cuts down on the number of results to wade through, and will point you to better stuff than Google. You won't often find free full text, though.
- WorldCat, library catalog to the planet, is freely available and the best place to keep up with what books are being published on any topic.
- The Internet Public Library is a fabulous portal to all kinds of information.
- Keep in mind that government websites can offer a wealth of information. Try the National Institutes of Mental Health.
- You can still use the lists of sites posted on Research Guides:
- General Psychology
- Clinical Mental Health Counseling
TOCs online and Alerts
Many if not most journals provide abstracts online for new and recent issues; and many provide free email TOC [Table of Contents] alerts. At the journal's website you can sign up to receive regular announcements of what's being published. Occasionally journals even put their most recent issue online for free (Journal of Marriage and Family, for example); it's worth going to a journal's website to check out just what you can get.
Open access journals
There is a growing movement to make more scientific and scholarly information freely available. Check out the Directory of Open Access Journals for a list of free online journals in all subject areas, and psychology in particular.
There are ways to make Google searches more productive.
- In Advanced Search, you can limit to a sites in a particular domain -- academic (.edu), government (.gov), or organization (.org). This eliminates the ".com" junk and retrieves information from (generally speaking) more reliable sites.
- You can also limit to file type - PDF, for example, which is a way to retrieve full text results. Often what you'll get is full text book reviews or CVs but you can also find full text articles this way, as well as the full text of conference papers, bibliographies, and more.
- Use the Interlibrary Loan service of whatever library you are affiliated with.
- Check to see what access to state university libraries your state might provide for residents.
