IPSWICH, Mass. — June 30, 2015 — The American Psychological Association (APA) is making its e-books available to libraries on the EBSCO eBooks™ platform. The agreement with EBSCO Information Services gives libraries cost-effective access to in-demand psychology, behavioral sciences and social sciences titles.
At launch, 300 scholarly and professional titles from the APA are accessible through EBSCO eBooks. The content covers a wide-range of topics in psychology and related disciplines, including medicine, neuroscience, psychiatry, nursing, sociology, education, pharmacology, and more. Available titles include important new releases such as the APA Dictionary of Psychology, Second Edition, and The Psychology of Law: Human Behavior, Legal Institutions, and Law, by Bruce D. Sales and Daniel A. Krauss.
Libraries have several options when purchasing APA e-books from EBSCO: using the ownership model (one user); through Patron-Driven Acquisition (PDA); or via lease. Titles can be purchased directly through the EBSCOhost Collection Manager, as well as through GOBI or OASIS. With no markups and no fees on any title, EBSCO eBooks is an economical and convenient way for libraries to acquire the titles that researchers, clinicians, and students need.
APA Publisher Gary R. VandenBos, PhD, says that the partnership with EBSCO improves the accessibility of APA titles. “Making the electronic versions of APA titles available through EBSCO eBooks gives librarians greater flexibility in adding our content to their library’s collections. We strive to make significant information about the field available as readily and conveniently as possible, and our partnership is a reflection of that goal.”
