On-Campus Resources

Professional Psychology students have the library and research facilities of the George Washington University at their disposal.

Professional Psychology students primarily use the Gelman Library. The Gelman Library is the main library serving the University community and has strong collections in psychology, special education, and related fields such as art therapy. The Gelman Library owns over 1.4 million volumes and currently subscribes to more than 9000 periodicals. Access to the Gelman collection is available through the ALADIN catalog which also contains holdings information for the Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library and the Jacob Burns Law Library.

For specialized health sciences information needs, Professional Psychology students may also utilize the resources and services of the Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library, a major health sciences research library, by special arrangement. Most of its collection is available on-campus electronically.

Professional Psychology students may also have access to the Jacob Burns Law Library if they have law-related research needs. The Burns Law Library is affiliated with the George Washington University Law School and has over 500,000 volumes.

In addition to the more substantial resources available elsewhere on campus, the Professional Psychology Program maintains a smaller, in-house collection of articles that are available to students. Search access to these articles is restricted to computers in the program’s computing facility.
