Introducing...Health and Psychosocial Instruments
Need a survey or questionnaire for your research? Why reinvent the wheel? The Robert R. Muntz Library is pleased to announce a new subscription to Health and Psychosocial Instruments (HaPI).
Health and Psychosocial Instruments provides ready access to information on measurement instruments (i.e., questionnaires, interview schedules, checklists, index measures, coding schemes/ manuals, rating scales, projective techniques, vignettes/scenarios, tests) in the health fields, psychosocial sciences, organizational behavior, and library and information science.HaPI does not contain the actual instrument but gives you information on how to obtain the article. The information in HaPI is maintained by Behavioral Measurement Database Services (BMDS). BMDS provides copies of selected instruments cited in the HaPI database for a small fee. If you are having trouble finding an instrument, BMDS also provides free Assistance and Consulting. For more information about BMDS please see their brochure. The University of Washington Health Science Libraries has created a really useful Searching HaPI guide which goes through some of the database's advanced search techniques. Ovid has created a Field Guide which also provides details for taking advantage of HaPI's advanced search capabilities. Health and Psychosocial Instruments can be accessed through the alphabetical list on the Find an Article (Databases) page and through related Research/Subject Guides. Please note that our subscription to HaPI is limited to 5 concurrent users. For help using Health and Psychosocial Instruments, please take a look at one of the resources above, or contact a librarian.
