Gilgamesh and Personality Tests

Its getting more and more crowded in the library and at the Research Help Desks as we head into the beginning of the quarter ...  Ready, set, go!

 Topics coming to us this past week include:

  • Eric Voegelin
  • Ecology of Lake Michigan
  • Pi (not pie)
  • Gilgamesh

And, an in-depth look at some conversations weve had via IM, in person, through email, or over the phone:

We were asked for help researching entrepreneurial personality tests.  The researcher didnt have a particular test in mind, so the librarian started with PsycINFO, from the Psychology Research Guide.  They searched for the term Personality specifically in the Tests and Measurements field in the drop-down list, with Entrepreneurship as a subject.  They found lots of good results, including several articles about the Big Five Personality Test.

This Week in Reference: August 31-Sept 6, 2014
