Psychology library

Psychology is extremely fortunate in having its own library, in part, supported by the Stirling-Boyd bequest and the Drever Fund and staffed during semester-time, by a full-time librarian, Mrs Karen Fleet. The collection is used extensively by third and fourth year students and by postgraduates and academic staff. All students must register with the librarian before using this facility. Access is by matriculation card. This library space is now shared with Philosophy, as after formation of the School of PPLS, the Haldane and Psychology libraries amalgamated.

Of particular benefit to students is the extensive collection of reprints used in the lecture courses, and multiple copies of key texts. All books in the Psychology library are also housed in the main university library. In addition there are a number of journals which are uniquely located here. There is also a resource room with computing and video facilities.

Psychometric tests

Many students will wish to use psychometric tests in their research projects. Psychology houses a store of tests, and students may borrow some of these tests from the librarian. Some general information about choosing and locating tests, together with some information about specific types of test, e.g. personality, can be found at the following links:
