  • Getting started -- where you are now; includes brief information about St. Thomas libraries and other guides of interest
  • Finding Books -- search for print or electronic books, media, and other things that would be in a library--or in some cases--online

  • Citing Sources -- help for completing the bibliography for your paper/project

About the Libraries and Off-Campus Information

Most of the recent printed sources on developmental or educational psychology will probably be located at Keffer Library.  You may occasionally find a book or journal that is housed at O-Shaughnessey-Frey Library (or possibly in another CLICnet library).  You may request items at other libraries through interlibrary loan.  If you are in an off-campus cohort (and outside the metro area), you may request any circulating books from any library (including Keffer) on interlibrary loan and they will be mailed to you
