Introduction

Searches for research instruments and information about research instruments can be tricky. This guide is designed to help you understand some of the issues surrounding instruments as well as introduce  resources that can be used to find information about them.

The first question you need to answer is this: Do I need to find information about a research instrument or do I need to obtain a copy for use in research?

If you need information about a research instrument, what kind of information do you need: information on content, development, psychometric properties (reliability, validity, etc.)? 

If you plan to use the instrument in research, you need to be concerned not only with obtaining the instrument, but also obtaining permission to use the instrument.
