Great news about PsycBooks. They have expanded the database to include APA books when they are published (usually they hold them back one year) and APA Handbooks which, up until now, have been excluded from PsycBooks. Click here for a list of all the new books added in July, including a list of all the APA handbooks which are now available.
The APA Handbooks are wonderful reference sources and include the following areas:
- Behavior Analysis
- Counseling Psychology
- Educational Psychology
- Ethics in Psychology
- Industrial and Organizational Psychology
- Multicultural Psychology
- Personality and Social Psychology
- Psychology, Religion, and Spirituality
- Research Methods in Psychology
- Sexuality and Psychology
- Testing and Assessment in Psychology
Check out PsycBooks in our EBSCO databases. Use “Choose Databases” to include PsycBooks in your search. Then, put the handbook title in the search box as “SO Source” to find all chapters in the handbooks. You can also put in the handbook title in the search box and search as “TI Title.” Just be sure to ignore the SFX, click on the title and scroll down on the next page for a full list of all the chapters. Click on a chapter title to get to the PDF.
As always, contact a librarian if you're having any trouble.
