Welcome to e-train

Need help finding information for your research paper? To google or not to google?

Are you suffering from Information Overload Syndrome? Wondering if you are on the right path...?

It is easy to begin to feel overwhelmed with all the literature that is available in the fields of Psychology and Psychiatry. If you have answered yes to all or some of the above, get aboard the Psychology e-train and stop at the following the seven stations:


Station 1 -- Using PsycINFO
Station 2 -- Using ERIC
Station 3 -- Comparing PsycINFO and ERIC
Station 4 -- Finding Empirical Research
Station 5 -- Finding Full Text Articles using the Journal Finder
Station 6 -- Finding Tests and Measurements
Station 7 -- Finding Medical Resources

At each step, you will be asked to use a resource and answer questions. If you have questions about the
terminology in this exercise, consult this Glossary of Library and Internet Terms

Before you begin, please review the following carefully:

  • You will need to finish the activities in one sitting. Please allow yourself ample time to complete each step.

  • Print each page or write down all the information from each step because you will need it to complete the next activities. 

  • After completing each step, you will receive an email confirmation that contains the information you submitted for that particular step. You will receive seven emails in total.

  • To receive credit for the activity, be sure to forward the confirmation email message to your instructor, Mou Chakraborty at: mou@nova.edu
