Research Guides:

UCLA librarians with expertise in statistics have created several guides to help you locate relevant statistics:


Journal Articles

The UCLA Library maintains a helpful guide to databases by subject. For each subject, the guide lists the most significant databases and links to more detailed guides created by subject specialist librarians. There are also several general databases that include scholarly articles on multiple subjects. Among these databases are ProquestAcademic Search Complete, and Google Scholar.

Below are two journal databases that are very useful for searching for articles specifically in the psychology and medical/health fields respectively.  


To find books available at UCLA on any topics, including in the medical and psychology fields, conduct a UC Library Search. Enable your VPN to access e-books and articles.  For books not available at UCLA, either in print or electronically, you can request them via inter-library loan (ILL):

  • If you find a catalog record for the book through your UC Library Search, log into your UCLA account to request an interlibrary loan.
  • If you do not find a record for the book through your UC Library Search, ask a librarian for help or click the ... at the top of the page and then select "Blank ILL Request." 

The UC Library catalog includes catalog records for all types of library resources and also includes records for some individual book chapters (particularly for more recent books).  After conducting a UC Library Search, you can use the filtering options on the left side of the screen to narrow your results to just books, book chapters, or other types of library resources.  

If you would like to see what libraries in the U.S. or worldwide own a particular book, you can conduct a search on the Worldcat catalog, which contains holdings information for thousands of libraries worldwide. Access WorldCat from the A-Z Databases page (search for “worldcat” and select “WorldCat (OCLC FirstSearch)”).
