Resource spotlight: PsychiatryOnline

PsychiatryOnline is a comprehensive resource containing multiple sources of information on mental health, including books and journals.

Its flagship resource is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which is easily searched or browsed. Accompanying DSM texts, the Handbook of Differential Diagnosis and Clinical Cases, are also available.

In addition to the DSM library are textbooks such as The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry and Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Clinical Manual of Geriatric Psychiatry, Dulcan’s Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Integrated Care: Working at the Interface of Primary Care and Behavioral Health, and Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury. Important journals, such as the American Journal of Psychiatry and Psychiatric Services are also available.

One does not need to know which resource to start with when using PsychiatryOnline. An quick search allows you to find the right information, whether in the DSM, a book, or journal.

PsychiatryOnline is linked in the Clinical Resources on the library’s homepage and is available to all UNMC faculty, staff, and students.
