A guide to conducting research in psychology at JMU

Background Information in Related and Specialized Subjects

There are hundreds of other encyclopedias and handbooks that look at psychology through various lenses - far too many to list here. For example, JMU owns an Encyclopedia of Psychology and Religion, and a Handbook of Psychology and Sexual Orientation. If you find that your research goes into a narrower topic like this and you need background information, you can find relevant resources like the ones above by either searching the JMU Library Catalog or by asking the Psychology Librarian for assistance.
