School of Psychology Test library

Access to many psychological tests is restricted to qualified psychologists or psychology students, and these tests are not held by the Barr Smith Library. Some tests published in journals and monographs do not have restricted use, and may be available through the Library.

The School of Psychology has a Test Library, accessible to staff (including titleholders) and honours and higher degree students, but not to undergraduates.

The Test Library is located in Room 114 in the Hughes Building. 

Library opening hours during Semesters One and Two and the mid Semester break are 11.00 - 1.00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  In the summer non-teaching period, the library is open via appointment only.

Out of session appointments can be made with Kate Chadwick, the Test Librarian, who can be contacted at fhmsresops@adelaide.edu.au.
If she is not available, contact the School of Psychology Office on level 5.
