Many books contain instruments, or portions of instruments, or discuss instrument design. You won't generally be able to search for the name of an instrument, just for a book that might include instruments about a topic.
Primo is the main search tool for finding books in the library. Because other items, like articles, are also included in Primo, view the tips below for effective searching for helpful books.
The Search Primo box below lets you do an advanced search in Primo. Why is that helpful?
To find instruments about your research topic, use keywords about it in the first search box. In the second box, try using this string of words: test* OR “family assessment” OR “behavioral assessment” OR “nursing assessment” OR “personality assessment” OR “data collection” OR measurement* OR surveys OR battery OR questionnaires OR interview* OR psychodiagnostics OR psychometrics OR sociometr*
Before you click the Search button, add some limits to your search using the drop-down menus on the right. Make sure the Material Type is set to Books and the Language to English.
