Welcome to the Subject Guide for Psychology

Human brainPsychology is a broad-ranging subject, with links to many other subject areas. This is reflected in the range and complexity of information resources that are relevant to you. In this guide we'll direct you to the most useful tools, and show you how to make best use of them.

Don't forget that whether you're a student or a member of staff, you're very welcome to contact the subject librarian for Psychology - I can give you advice on anything covered in this guide (and much more).
