Okay may I ask why VCU has articles listed in psyche info but the school doesn't have them. You guys think you could just only put the articles that we have access to via online. Some of us do our work from the comfort of our home.
It is safe to say that none of the hundreds of university libraries that uses PsycINFO owns all the journals indexed in it. PsycINFO contains more than 2 million citations and summaries of scholarly journal articles, book chapters, books, and dissertations, all in psychology and related disciplines, dating as far back as the 1800s. Ninety-seven percent of the covered material is peer-reviewed. Journal coverage, which spans 1887 to present, includes international material selected from nearly 2,000 periodicals in more than 25 languages.
Below each PsycINFO entry is a yellow "Get it at VCU" button that when clicked, will search to find if we own the journal containing that listed article. For a brief two-minute introduction to the Get It at VCU tool, see this online demo.
If you don't mind searching in a smaller pool of articles, but one that offers complete full-text, you might want to try the PsycARTICLES database. PsycARTICLES is a source of searchable full-text, peer-reviewed scholarly and scientific articles in psychology. The database contains more than 40,000 articles from 53 journals - 45 published by the American Psychological Association (APA) and 8 from allied organizations. It includes all journal articles, letters to the editor and errata from each journal. Coverage spans 1985 to present.
For articles we don't own, we will get them for you from another library without charge if you request any needed article via our ILLIAD system.
Most importantly, if ever unsure how to find the full-text of a needed article, contact our Research & Reference desk staff by e-mail, chat, in person, or by phone at 828-1101 or toll-free at 1-866-VCU-BOOK.
