PSY 407 - Contemporary Issues in Applied Psychology
This Guide focuses on library resources covering recent advances in applied psychology and ethical considerations. Access to information sources covering current issues within various areas in psychology are included.
If you identify articles within certain journals that are not owned by SNHU's Shapiro Library, you can request that we borrow them from another library using our Interlibrary Loan service. This is a free service to members of the SNHU community, including students, faculty, and staff.
Through Interlibrary Loan, we can borrow items such as journal articles, books, newspaper articles, and other circulating materials.
Presently we can borrow most articles via electronic requests and email delivery. We typically can turn around journal article requests in 3 to 5 business days, although it may sometimes take longer. Start your research early in order to give yourself enough time to use Interlibrary Loan, if necessary.
