Psychology research just got a little easier with the Education Psychology Library's recent subscription to the psychology module of Oxford Scholarship Online.
The collection of 430 online books is growing and has a wide variety of areas within psychology. While the subscription to Oxford Scholarship Online was requested by faculty and graduate students in psychology, the resource will likely be used by Graduate School of Education faculty and students as well, evidenced by the fact that six of the top 10 journals cited in GSE dissertations were psychology journals, according to Susan Edwards, Head of the Education Psychology & Social Welfare Libraries.
Not only are the Oxford Scholarship Online e-books available anytime, anywhere, they have the other advantages that come with e-books, such as the ease of word search and sharing of content as well as different ways to view content (on screen, PDF, printer-friendly). Book titles are updated three times a year.
"The wonderful thing about the Oxford Scholarship Online is that it allows you to access research in book chapters electronically just as we access journal articles. Now you do not have to buy a book or hope that the library has the book to get access to a single chapter," said Prof. Frank Worrell, who directs GSE's School Psychology program.
Online books are available to UC Berkeley students, faculty or staff who are off-campus via the proxy server or VPN. Visiting scholars and other members of the community are welcome to use the resource in any of the libraries, including the Education Psychology Library on the 2nd floor of Tolman Hall.
