Accessing Unpublished Tests & Measures

Many tests mentioned or named in journal articles or dissertations have never been separately published. Contacting the author directly is often the most efficient way to locate a test instrument and/or gain permission to reuse it. Your librarian may be able to help locate that author and/or the Interlibrary Loan office may be able to obtain a copy of the instrument.  Please ask, and we will do our best to help you to obtain the access you need.
