Depending on your topic, you will use different databases. Below are databases used most often by CMHC students to find articles.
For counseling-related topics, start with PsycINFO.
The DSM is available online. You can also borrow a physical copy of the DSM-V for 2 hours at a time, from the reserves shelf - just ask at the library help desk.
For help using the databases listed above, check out these Library Guides, or make an appointment with Frances Brady using the link in the box above.
