Statement of Policy*

The FMHI Research Library provides access to educational and psychological standardized instruments, otherwise known as Tests and Measurements, serving the research and teaching needs of qualified faculty, students and licensed professionals at the University of South Florida.  Qualified faculty and students are defined as those whose fields are directly involved with standardized testing, whether through course instruction or enrollment.  Licensed professionals are defined as those individuals holding active, Florida licenses who are affiliated with USF through the following departments and programs: Psychology, Psychiatry, Counseling, Education.

Due to the ethical and legal requirements outlined by most test publishers, the Tests & Measurements collection is made available for academic research use only.  It is the function of the FMHI Research Library to provide materials for examination and study; tests may not be reproduced or used in ways that will compromise test validity.  Use of the collection implies that borrowers will not photocopy, administer or use test materials for pre-test practice or coaching.

The following procedures apply to use of the collection:

  1. Tests and measures are restricted to in-library use only.
  2. Authorized users are limited to borrowing one test at a time.
  3. Borrowers must present a valid USF ID card or copy of state license.  Borrowers will be asked to complete the “Tests & Measures Use Request Form.”
  4. Borrowers should report missing or damaged items to avoid potential responsibility for replacement costs, as applicable.
