Instructions For Using the Digital Reading Room

The Digital Reading Room consists of a compilation of supplementary reading materials that are available for Psychology 406: Introduction to Theories of Counselling and Psychotherapy. The purpose of the Digital Reading Room is to provide online access to these resources, and to aid you in locating and requesting supplementary materials for the course. There are five different types of resources available in the Digital Reading Room: books, videos, print-based articles, online articles, and websites.

Accessing Books and Videos

By clicking on an entry that is labeled as either a book or video, you will be redirected to the appropriate catalogue listing for the resource in AU's AUCAT database. The resource can then be ordered from the library by clicking on the Request This Item button located in the top right hand corner of the menu bar. You will be required to fill out a request form, and upon its submission, the book or video will be mailed out to you.

Accessing Print-based Articles

Resources labeled as print-based articles are journal articles that only exist in paper form. Unfortunately, they are not available online. A print-based article can be ordered from the AU Library by clicking on the appropriate entry and filling out the online request form that you are directed to. Once you fill out and submit the form, the AU Library will mail a copy of the article to you.

Accessing Online Articles

Online articles are journal articles which are available online, and can be accessed through one of the electronic databases the AU Library subscribes to. If you click on an entry to access an online article, you will be prompted to enter your name and Student/Library ID. Once you have been authenticated, you should be taken directly to the online article.

Accessing Websites

To access a website, click on the entry for the website. You will be immediately linked to the website.
