New e-books collection: PsycBOOKS

Announcing the recent acquisition of a significant collection of online ebooks in the field of psychology—PsycBOOKS.

PsycBOOKS from the American Psychological Association (APA) is a full text database of more than 1,566 scholarly books and 24,161 chapters published by APA and other distinguished publishers. Within this resource there are over 800 classic resources of historical impact in psychology dating from 1806, more than 740 books published by the APA and 100 out-of-print books from 1950–2002. PsycBOOKS holds the exclusive online release of the APA/Oxford University Press Encyclopedia of Psychology with more than 1,500 authored entries. Digitization of the content from the Archives of the History of American Psychology (AHAP) collection will add upwards of 2,500 works of historical significance.

PsycBOOKS is indexed with controlled vocabulary from the APA Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms resulting in precise searching and results. PsycBOOKS does exclude the content found in the APA Publication Manual, the APA directories, and books for popular audiences. Although updates are monthly, there is an eighteen month embargo on newly published titles. USF’s subscription to PsycBOOKS is through the EBSCOHost platform.
