You may have noticed that our RefWorks citation manager resource has been updated. Yes, the bibliographic citation manager the Chicago School Library subscribes to has officially updated to RefWorks 2.0. Your current RefWorks account and files still exist, so don’t worry! And the functionality remains the same in this new interface, which you should find easier and more intuitive to use. Click here to watch a brief introduction video about the new RefWorks interface. Or feel free to contact your friendly library staff with any questions! 312.329.6630 | firstname.lastname@example.org
The Chicago School Library will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday break.

Enjoy your holiday break!
The Chicago School Library has added a new page to its site that provides links to free psychology resources on the web. Current links provide access to web sites like Pub Med Central, DOAJ, and SAGE Open, which offer access to free peer-reviewed journal articles. You can also link to web sites providing mental health and criminal statistics and information on clinical trials, and to web sites dedicated to specific issues like PTSD or MR images of the brain. Links to free, scholarly web sites will continued to be added to the Psycholgy Web Resources page throughout the academic year, so check back from time to time! And if you know of a resource that you think your peers might benefit from let us know and we can add that link to our page: email@example.com
The library has recently added some great new books to its reference collection. Reference books must remain in the library but you are free to read and photocopy the sections you need.
APA Handbook of Industrial and Organizational Psychology (2011) edited by Sheldon Zedeck
Essentials of WIAT-III and KTEA-II assessment (2010) Lichtenberger and Breaux
Essentials of assessment with brief intelligence tests (2007) by Homack and Reynolds

Or you could be just curious about what all of this is leading up to…
