  • IBISWorld: Contains 700 industry reports between 35 and 50 pages. Each report covers the competitive landscape, industry outlook, products and markets, operating conditions, key statistics, industry performance, and more. IBISWorld can only be used for academic purposes.

  • PsycTESTS (NOTE: Link goes to Library Announcement; Database Guide forthcoming): A repository of tests, measures, scales, surveys, and other assessments. Records include descriptive information, development and administrative documentation, and, in many cases, a copy of the instrument with permission for immediate use.
  • SAGE Research Methods: With a focus on research methods this collection contains over 175,000 pages of books, journal articles, and reference materials in additional to a growing collection of videos.
