Section 3 - Computing and Library Resources
Extensive computing facilities are available in the “cluster rooms”, of which there are many across the University campus. Conveniently there is a large cluster room on the first floor of our building (up the first set of stairs after you come through reception, in the East lobby). For further information about other locations visit the the Information Systems Division Web Pages.
Computing facilities are managed by UCL rather than by the Department, and are accessed by students of all disciplines. Although access is usually not too difficult it is sometimes a good idea to book computers in advance.
Training courses offered by Information Systems
Although many trainees are computer literate, not all are, and many of you could benefit from learning how to make more efficient use of programmes.
UCL offers a number of courses that are open to postgraduate students. These range from introductory courses on working with Windows; introductory and intermediate courses on Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, Eudora for e-mail, Netscape for use of the internet, and an introduction to SPSS.
For more information about the courses, please visit their website: www.ucl.ac.uk/is/training/student/index.htm or e‑mail Information Systems: email@example.com
UCL library resources
The College Library holds around 1.5 million volumes covering all subjects taught at UCL. About half of the stock is available on the open shelves. Holdings relevant to Clinical Psychology can be found at:
· DMS Watson library; also known as the Science Library (where most holdings can be found)
· UCL Medical School library (located in the medical school -Cruciform Building)
There is extensive information about the Library, its services, sites and opening hours at www.ucl.ac.uk/Library/index.shtml
Access to electronic journals and databases
A very large number of journals can be accessed electronically, via the UCLlibrary website. In most cases users can access not only contents and abstracts, but full-text versions of articles.
E-journals can be accessed from a UCL-managed computer (for example, a machine in one of the cluster rooms (details as below). They can also be accessed off-site using a UCL user number and password.
The library subscribes to a large number of on-line databases (including PsychInfo, Medline, and Embase) and citation databases. As above, these are available both at UCL and off-site.
University of London Library (Senate House)
UCL students have access to the University Library (entrance on the fourth floor of Senate House, Malet Street). Tickets can be obtained by showing a UCL ID card. This library holds about 1.4 million volumes and over 5,500 current periodicals. The BPS library is based in Senate House, and holdings include a number of psychology journals unavailable in UCL. You can access the University of London library catalogue via the UCL library website.
DClinPsy book library and test library
Thanks to support from the Friends of UCL, the Research Department has been able to establish a psychological test reference library. This holds various psychological tests, measures and questionnaires, providing invaluable tools for research, both for our trainees and for the wider UCLbody. For Test Library enquiries, see the Research and Finance Administrator in the General Office.
A small library of essential books is situated in the Common Room. See the Research and Finance Administrator in the General Office if you want to borrow a book.
References and key articles
Reference copies of key articles and recommended reading lists for individual course units are kept in "Unit Boxes", housed in the Common Room for easy trainee access.
The dissertation collection (which includes dissertations of all past trainees) is available for trainee reference. Keys to the dissertation cabinets are held in the General Office.
