While the University Library does NOT actively collect psychological test instruments (surveys, scales, etc.), we have many sources that can assist you in learning more about a particular test and sometimes obtaining the test itself.
Commercially-available tests are usually purchased through the test publisher.
Unpublished tests or those that originated in the scholarly literature can normally be obtained directly from the researcher/author who created the test. These tests may also be available in the APA PsycTests database or appended in journal articles or books.
Steps to Finding Tests and Test Information
There are four main steps to finding, evaluating, and using tests. Each of these steps has a corresponding website with more information.
IDENTIFY > identify the names of some potential tests for your research need
EVALUATE > Evaluate the test for validity and reliability
SEARCH > Search for the actual test or sample test questions
