Beginning Alpha Term 2014, Carroll Students will be able to enjoy access to a new full text database selected to add support to our Counseling Program. Don Day, Carroll Director of Library and Information Services, says that the Journals are an initial step toward providing more resources in the area of Counseling and Psychology.
ProQuest Psychology Journals™ provides abstracts and indexing for more than 1,000 titles. Users get access to charts, diagrams, graphs, tables, photos, and other graphical elements essential to psychological research.
Additionally, ProQuest Psychology Journals includes 4,000 full-text dissertations representing a range of psychology disciplines including behavioral, clinical, cognitive, developmental, experimental, industrial, personality, physiological, psychobiology, psychometrics, and social psychology.

Dr. Scott Floyd, Director of the Psychology and Counseling Program at Carroll, comments, “I am excited that these new resources have been added to the B.H. Carroll library. M.A. Counseling and Ph.D. students will benefit greatly from these as they research material for their counseling courses.”
