The Library is offering a trial of a database that includes “grey literature” resources in the social and behavioral sciences. PsycEXTRA is an APA database that compiles what is known as grey literature, materials that go beyond traditional peer-reviewed research material. It includes resources such as conference materials, factsheets, reports, standards/guidelines, and other hard-to-find content.

The trial is available until April 24. If it gets a lot of use and we receive positive feedback, we will consider subscribing to it. Please spread the word about the trial if you are interested, and feedback is welcome. Thank you!

Here is the trial link for PsycExtra:
