Books about Psychology

Browsing

Most psychology books are located in the Library of Congress call number BF on the second floor of the Oviatt Library. Remember to look also in the first floor Reference Room, although reference books (with green dot) cannot be checked out. Because psychology is broad in scope and intersects with many disciplines, you may want to browse books in other sections as well. Here are some related disciplines and their call numbers:

  • Abnormal psychology - RC 512-571
  • Educational psychology -- LB 1051-1091
  • Human factors - TA 167
  • Industrial psychology -- HF 5548.8
  • Physiological psychology -- QP 351-495
  • Psychotherapy - RC 475-510
  • Statistics/correlation -- QA 278
  • Social psychology - HM 251-291
