Thanks to Mr. Donald Bradsher, retired NCCU Head Reference Librarian, who's original psychology LibGuide was the basis for the current guide, and to Ms. Doris Sigl, retired NCCU Serials Librarian, for allowing me to use her LibGuides welcome page as the basis for my own.

Thanks also to Ms. Angela Bardeen, Social Sciences Reference Librarian at UNC-Chapel Hill's Davis Library, who's subject guide on Tests, Surveys, Measures, was invaluable in finding test and measurement resources.
