Unfortunately, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), is not available for free online. Also, because most libraries who own the DSM keep the book in their reference collection and do not lend it out, our library cannot obtain a copy for you.

If you live near a public library (or a college library that welcomes visitors), you can go in and ask if they have a copy of the DSM that you can use there, onsite.

You can also simply research your psychology/mental-health topic in our library databases. You won't find info from the DSM there, but you should be able to find other useful info on your topic.
