The purpose of this pathfinder is to introduce some of the psychology resources available in the FDTC libraries. The various types of library materials useful in research are described along with some examples of each type. This guide is not a comprehensive listing of resources, but is intended to be a starting point from which students can begin their research according to their specific needs. For assistance contact a member of the library staff or contact us from our web pagewww.fdtc.edu/library via our virtual reference link.
