PSYC Introduction to Psychology


We created this library guide for psychology students. It has information about searching in library resources for course assignments, citing sources in APA style and getting writing support from NCC tutors. If you are in a psychology class, please bookmark this page to have it handy.


  • Start exploring the library's resources with NCC OneSearch. With this tool, you will search across many things at once-- all of the library's databases, ebooks and print books. Then, you can use limiters to fine tune your results.
  • If you want to start by looking at fewer (potentially more focused) results, choose a single database or eBook below. You can even search inside an eBook.

Library Information Sources

These databases contain articles from publications including peer-reviewed or academic journals. If you cannot find what you need in the others, try Academic Search Premier. Having the most publications, it is the largest of these databases.

Browse through issues of Time magazine to find articles that mention research studies.
