Tests or scales have been developed to measure almost every attribute of human behavior. Finding information about them can sometimes be difficult. The following sources can help you find either a specific test by title or author, or a test that measures a certain human attribute such as self-esteem. The Biomedical Library does not have actual copies of any psychological tests. However, most of the items listed below include information about how to obtain copies of the test. Please remember that to actually use an instrument you are required to obtain copyright clearance from the author and/or publisher of the item.
All these items are located in the Biomedical Library Reference Stacks (located behind the elevators on the 1st floor) unless otherwise noted.
