New Book List

A new Ebook list has been added to the finding guides page.  It contains a number of subjects across several disciplines.  The list was generated after compiling a list after searching each topic through the Chicago School's online library catalog.  The intent of the list is to highlight the availability of online resources to our academic community so that these resources may be better utilized.

Subjects include: Management and Organizational Diversity for I/O.  Autism and Bi-polar under Disorders.  Child Development and Lifespan under Life Cycle.  Criminal Psychology for Forensics.  Family Violence and Play Therapy under MFT.  And many more.

The Finding Guides page also provides information on how to use the online catalog for searching and additional information regarding the library resources.

Watch Frontline Videos Online

PBS has access to Frontline Videos covering many topics concerning Social Issues which may be of interest to students or faculty.  Two of the videos, The Meth Epidemic and Inside the Teenage Brain, are titles the library currently owns and has available for checkout.  Students and faculty with web access may view these videos from anywhere and do not require any password or subscription.

Cyberbullying resources on our E Brary database

Message from our E Brary vendor.  Notes some interesting resources, ie.  E books, on Cyberbulling. 

Dear Customers, Partners and Friends:

According to the U.S. National Crime Prevention Council, 43% of teens have been the victims of cyber bullying in the past year.

To help parents, educators, and others better understand, prevent, and take action against this growing concern, ebrary is pleased to subsidize a collection of open access e-books on cyber bullying and enable other organizations to contribute materials as long as they have copyrights.

Available today at http://site.ebrary.com/lib/cyberbullying, ebrary’s Cyber Bullying Searchable Information Center includes such titles as Click, Click, Who’s Really There?: Protect Your Family from Online Predators, Pedophiles, Privacy Loss and More, by Koh (LHK Publishing, LLC, 2006); Bullying Prevention and Intervention: Realistic Strategies for Schools, by Susan Swearer (Guilford Press, 2009); and Keep Your Kids Safe on the Internet, by Simon Johnson (McGraw-Hill, 2004). It also includes a growing selection of documents uploaded by ebrary employees from authoritative sites including the Pew Internet & American Life Project, U.S. Department of Justice, and other agencies.

ebrary encourages organizations to upload their own relevant materials, right from their computers, with DASH! (Data Sharing, Fast). Interested organizations may email tish.wagner@ebrary.com for a complimentary DASH! account. Customers of Academic Complete, College Complete, Public Library Complete, and Government Complete can get started on their own DASH! collections by emailing dash-support@ebrary.com.

The Cyber Bullying Searchable Information Center is just one of a growing number of open access collections created by ebrary employees and customers with DASH! A listing of additional, freely available collections is provided at http://www.ebrary.com/corp/accessCollections.jsp. If you are an ebrary customer and would like to add any of these collections to your existing channel, please email site-update@ebrary.com.

We hope the Cyber Bullying Searchable Information Center proves to be a valuable resource for better understanding and addressing this important issue. We welcome your feedback at dash@ebrary.com.

Dissertation Resources

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology has a number of dissertation resources available via the web page.
1. You can go to the Dissertation Resources page of the TCS website for official help.

here is the link. http://ego.thechicagoschool.edu/s/843/index.aspx?sid=843&gid=66&pgid=61&cid=160
2. On the Libraries web page, you can consult the database ProQuest Dissertations and Theses which allows you to see full text examples of successful dissertations and abstracts.
3. I strongly advise if you have not already done so, to register for inter-library loan via the Libraries web page. Great way to get articles.
Feel free to contact your local librarian for help as you begin the arduous task of drafting your proposals and beginning your research.
