The PG Library works with information publishers and vendors to periodically bring free resources and trials for use by our students and faculty.  During the month of April, we have free trial access to three different resources.  First, IBISWorld will mostly appeal to business or any other student needing market and industry research and information.  The other databases are aimed at psychology and education students needing information on tests and measures, Mental Measurements Yearbook and APA PsycTests.  


Gain a quick and intelligent overview of thousands of global industries with IBISWorld.  According to IBISWorld, the features include:

Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print

Available from EBSCO and using their familiar search interface, this is how the vendor describes this database: Produced by the Buros Center for Testing at the University of Nebraska, this resource is essential for evaluating contemporary testing instruments. Designed for novices and professionals alike, it contains full-text reviews for test products in psychology, education, business and leadership. In addition, it provides a bibliography to all known commercially available English-language tests currently in print.

APA PsycTests

Description from the APA: Professionally indexed, the PsycTESTS® database is an extensive collection of items associated with psychological measures, scales, surveys, and other instruments essential to the research needs of professionals, students, and educators across the behavioral and social sciences.
