August 2010 Archives
Join us on August 24, 2010, at 10:00 a.m. on the second floor of Cabell Library for the ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of the new Learning Commons! Enjoy light refreshments as you tour the 13,000+ square feet of newly renovated space.
The Cabell Learning Commons is a joint project of VCU Libraries and VCU Technology Services and was funded by the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. Visit the Learning Commons Web page for photographs and more information.
The PsycINFO database is now available through APA PsycNet. It is still accessed via Quick Links or through Databases A-Z, but the new interface lets you search across 5 databases simultaneously:
PsycINFO (same content that was previously available via EBSCO)
PsycARTICLES (all full-text, peer-reviewed scholarly articles)
PsycBOOKS (contains the full text of chapters/books including APA titles, classic books, and the Encyclopedia of Psychology)
PsycEXTRA (indexes the gray literature in psychology and the behavioral sciences; good source for emerging research)
PsycCRITIQUES (a weekly release of book and film reviews, including popular films; a good source for teaching materials)
Become familiar with Cabell Library early and save on hassles later in the semester. Cabell Library tours meet inside the first-floor main entrance and last approximately 30 minutes. Participants will learn more about the facility, collections, and resources, as well as how library services and staff can assist visitors in completing their assignments. No registration required.
For more information about these tours and other VCU Libraries events and workshops, visit the events page.
