A starting point to help with your research and coursework in psychology.

Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5-TR)

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is developed by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to provide standard criteria for diagnosing mental disorders. The most recent edition is the Text Revision of the fifth edition (DSM-5-TR). Follow this link for an electronic version of the DSM-5-TR.


Additionally, you can borrow a print copy for two hours at a time from the library's front desk:

October 2022 Update: The APA updated how the DSM-5-TR describes neurocognitive disorders. The Neurocognitive Disorder Supplement (available at the link) aligns the DSM-5-TR with the latest research and clinical practices for these disorders. This update is especially important for neurology and mental health care for elderly people.

Our electronic version of the DSM-5-TR includes this update, but our print copy does not.

You can also access an electronic copy of the previous edition, the DSM-5, which was published in 2013. Many changes were made to this edition to create the DSM-5-TR; you can learn about these changes in these fact sheets from the APA.

Companion Books

EMU's collections include companion titles for the DSM, as well as titles that discuss using it in specific clinical contexts or areas within psychology research. In the list below, titles that are links go to electronic versions of the text (EMU NetID required for access).

Older Editions of the DSM

EMU's library has physical copies of the DSM going back to the third edition from 1980. The links in the titles below go to the page for that DSM edition in EMU's library catalog, where you can request to borrow it and pick it up at the library.

The DSM-5, published in 2013, is also available as an ebook at this link.
