Q. Does the Library provide electronic copies of the APA Publication Manual?
The Library is unable to provide electronic access to the APA Manual due to copyright restrictions.
However, the APA Manual will be mailed to all students within their second course. Please contact your Advisor for details. Additionally, you may opt to purchase an electronic version of the APA Manual for the Kindle only at: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CPUBEBM
Finally, the Academic Success Center and the Library provides access to APA Style CENTRAL, which provides over 150 sample references, as well as nearly 20 sample papers. It also incorporates all of the references and other content from the Publication Manual; the APA Style Guide to Electronic References, Sixth Edition; and the APA Style Blog.
Within APA Style CENTRAL’s Learning Center, each of the quick guides is associated with one or more sections from the Publication Manual. You can search or browse the quick guides to access Publication Manual content. For additional information, see the guide on Accessing the Publication Manual.
To access APA CENTRAL, go to A-Z Databases and search or browse alphabetically. For instructions on accessing through NCUOne or the Courseroom and creating your account, please see the videos below:
