The database offers links to a variety of materials describing tests in peer-reviewed literature, technical reports, and dissertations as well as links to related peer-reviewed literature describing test development, review, and use. PsycTherapy includes more than 300 videos featuring therapy demonstrations showing clinicians working with individuals, couples, and families. Please try out both and let us know what you think about PsycTESTS and PsycTHERAPY.
VIVA institutions are offering a 30-day free trial of Films on Demand streaming video.

Connecting to LancerNet is easier
LU’s LancerNet wireless is better than ever! Whether you purchased a LU Dell laptop or brought your own, you can use LancerNet Wireless by simply following the IITS configuration directions. LancerNet a secure network; therefore, you must enter your LancerNet ID and password each time you access the network.
LancerNet coverage has increased
The Library has better coverage and faster speeds. The Library went from 14 to 21 access points with greater bandwidth for speed. An average of 30 people can use each access point and still maintain quality speed. Approximately 600+ people can now reliably access LancerNet in the Library. Maximum speed per access point should be 300mbps; however, as more users connect, the bandwidth speed drops per user. Your wireless device will connect to the nearest access point with the best signal strength and most available bandwidth speed. As you move about the signal will change from access point to access point.
We hope these changes improve your computing experience!
