Marriage & Family Therapy Doctoral Program

The mission of the Antioch University New England Library is to support the work of our community of learners and professionals. Providing quality service to our patrons is the commitment underlying all of our library efforts.

Personal research support

Antioch librarians work with specific departments so that students and faculty are provided with consistent and individualized research support throughout their time at Antioch. Contact the library or use the Ask A Librarian form for assistance.

Resources

Patrons of AUNE Library have access to literally hundreds of online research databases, including all major psychology resources, as well as thousands of scholarly journals. AUNE Library maintains an up-to-date collection of both print and electronic books.

Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery

In addition to our in-house collection of resources, AUNE Library provides free -- and fast -- Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery services to all patrons. Patrons can use our online form to request materials (books, specific chapters, articles, audiovisual items) not found in our own collections. Patrons who are on campus infrequently can also request delivery of items from our own journal and book collections.

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.

Organizations

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:

Databases

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.

  • APA members can purchase different levels of access to PsycINFO and other APA databases; non-members can purchase 24-hour access to PsycINFO for $11.95 [as of May 2009].
  • 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.

Other websites

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, andpsychology in particular.

Google

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.

Other tips

  • 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.
  • If you've used RefWorks, you might want to investigate Zotero. RefWorks is not available to AUNE alumni. Zotero is a similar kind of citation management program but it's free to anyone (anyone who uses Firefox). It's also very easy to use, and has uses beyond citations and bibliographies for papers!
