APA Ebooks Are Now Available From ebrary
The American Psychological Association (APA) signed an agreement with ebrary (a ProQuest business) to make 250-plus ebooks available through ebrary’s platform. Libraries can select individual ebooks to purchase and choose one of three models: perpetual archive, demand-driven acquisition, or short-term loans.
Most of APA’s scholarly, professional, and reference titles published from 2009 to 2014 are included in the agreement, along with some LifeTools: Books for the General Public ebooks. Titles in the APA Handbooks in Psychology series are not available from ebrary, but they can be purchased directly from APA and will be delivered via the PsycNET platform.
“By teaming with ebrary to distribute electronic versions of APA’s scholarly, professional and trade titles, APA is providing libraries with more flexible options for incorporating our titles into their collections. APA is continuing to seek out new partnerships to increase the accessibility of our content,” says Gary R. VandenBos, APA’s publisher and the executive director of APA’s Office of Publications and Databases.
