For the Diagnostic Handbook assignment you will need books for background information.
We have two catalogs that you can use:
Books in our library are on the third floor arranged using Library of Congress Classification. You can look up the neat Call Number finder map to locate the title. If you ever have trouble finding a book you want, PLEASE ask for help at the Service Desk!
Here's a guide that gives you step by step instruction on how to get a print book and an ebook.
Books from other USMAI Libraries
You can also borrow books from any of the USMAI affiliations by selecting the "choose campus" link at the top of the catalog page and then selecting "USMAI All Campuses." When you find a book you want that is not in the Guerrieri Academic Commons (GAC) or in the Curriculum Resources Center (CRC in Conway Hall), click the "request" button and use your ID number to login. You can have the book delivered to GAC within 3 or 4 days.
The library of course has a couple of copies of DSM 5 RC455.2.C4 D54 2013
