If you are looking for information about psychological tests, start by searching APA PsycINFO to find the names of tests used in research and written about in the literature. Test names appear in both the Abstract and Tests & Measures fields. You can also search the APA PsycTests® database, which is specifically designed to provide descriptive information about unpublished tests and measures. 

Access PsycINFO and many other psychiatric and psychological research databases through Lane Library’s website and incorporate these useful databases in your research and/or clinical practice.
