You may have noticed, or will notice in the coming weeks, that the PsycINFO database has a different look to it. Indeed it does. The library is now providing PsycINFO through ProQuest rather than Ebsco.
From the library homepage, research.udmercy.edu, click on the third tab, Article, Journals + Databases.
Under Find databases by title, select the letter P. Scroll down until you find PsycINFO 1887 (third from the bottom). By clicking on it, the basic search screen will come up. You may enter your search term here. If you need scholarly articles and/or peer reviewed articles click in the boxes.
If you have multiple search terms, click on Advanced search.
When you do your searches, you may notice that you are getting little full-text. Searching PsycINFO by itself will not yield full-text articles. To expand your search to include full-text, click on the gold arrow at the top where it says Searching: 1 database.
Select ProQuest Psychology Journals and PsycARTICLES.
Now you will be searching three databases and the option for full-text will appear.
An easy way to search all three Proquest Psychology databases is from the Article, Journals + Databases tab, under Find databases by title, select the letter P. Instead of selecting PsycINFO 1887, select ProQuest Psychology Databases. That option will automatically allow you to search PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, and ProQuest Psychology Journals at one time.
The Advanced search option allows you to search with multiple terms. You can limit your results by Publication date, Source type (e.g. magazines, newspapers), Document type (e.g. Conference paper, report, review) and Language.
Explore the new PsycINFO and see how it can work for you. As always, please contact the library if you have questions about this database or any of the library databases.
