Researching Psychology. A message from Ms Vance:
“YIS has JSTOR, which you can browse by subject, as well as basic and advanced searches of course. Here’s a link to the Psychology section of JSTOR, which you can search within exclusively. You’ve got access at school by IP address, but to use it at home, you have to create a personal account while you’re at school first.
EbscoHost – Science Reference Center database also has psychology resources, although they are likely easier to access if you look at the subject terms SRC uses before you start searching. Working with databases, as you know, can be frustrating when encountering them for more or less the first time. I would be DELIGHTED to come into your classes and train kids how to use them. 🙂
Same goes for History, economics and geography. They’ve been exposed to these databases as part of their PP but subject specific training on how to use them on a DP level would be very helpful for them.
