The University Library has approved new books for the library collection. These are universal access books.

1) We have a new book to support APA citation style and formatting. We have the “Concise APA Handbook, 7th edition“.

 

Most students struggle with learning how to find references, use them effectively, and cite them appropriately in a required format. One of the most common formats is that of APA. The authors all have vast experience teaching writing courses to various levels of students from undergraduates to graduates in other countries. However, there was lacking a book that could explain the basics of APA in simple, easy-to-understand language for non-native speakers of English, who are often unfamiliar with using references and formatting an essay in a particular method.  This handbook presents the same information in simplified terms with images and step-by-step instructions in ways that make sense to both native and non-native English speaking student writers. Additionally, student writers often struggle with understanding the concept of plagiarism, as well as how to find sources, evaluate the appropriateness of sources, and use sources in effective ways (e.g., how to integrate quotes, when to paraphrase, among others). This book provides this important information that is concise and easy to understand. NOTE: This is a REVISED edition of our original The Concise APA Handbook, which has been updated for APA 7th edition, which was issued in the fall, 2019.

 

2) We’ve also added an APA Quick Guide to the library, APA Quick Study Guide

Quick reference guide to the 7th edition of the American Psychological Association’s publication manual for rules of punctuation, reference citation, structure and format in 6 digital pages filled with the answers you need for these commonly used guidelines. This style guide is used largely in academics, psychology, communications, business, nursing, social sciences, criminology, education, economics and more. Having a quick reference handy can speed up the writing and editing process allowing the writer to focus on the quality of the paper, ensuring a better grade if you are a student or a more professionally clean article or paper if writing for publication in your field. For the convenience and benefit of increasing the quality of your writings, the price makes it easy to add this to your writers toolbox. 6 page digital guide includes: What is APA Style? Scientific Writing Manuscript Structure & Content Clear & Concise Writing The Mechanics of Style Visuals & Results Paper Format with Sample Paper Citing Sources in the Text with ExamplesReference Type List Sample Reference List Publication Process Suggested uses: Students – Handy reference while writing papers, collect the set of guides you need for your classes to easily switch between styles Professors/Teachers – Keep handy while writing for academic journals in your subject areaProfessionals – Use while writing academic articles or papers for publication

 

 

3) For both the MACP & DCP program, we’ve added this new work, Innovations and Elaborations in Internal Family Systems Therapy (2016)

 

Martha Sweezy and Ellen L. Ziskind’s Internal Family Systems Therapy: New Dimensions quickly established itself as essential reading for clinicians who are interested in IFS by illustrating how the model can be applied to a variety of therapy modalities and patient populations. Sweezy and Ziskind’s newest volume, Innovations and Elaborations in Internal Family Systems Therapy, is the natural follow-up to that text. Here Richard Schwartz and other master IFS clinicians illustrate how they work with a wide variety of problems: racism, perpetrator parts, trauma, addiction, eating disorders, parenting, and grief. The authors also show creative ways of putting into practice basic IFS techniques that help parts to unblend and to unburden both personal and legacy burdens.

 

4) For the Education program, here is a new addition. Disrupting Adult and Community Education

 

Reconceptualizes local, national, and transnational adult education practices in light of neoliberalism and globalization.Honorable Mention, 2017 Phillip E. Frandson Award for Literature in the Field of Professional, Continuing, and/or Online Education presented by the University Professional and Continuing Education AssociationThis groundbreaking book critiques the boundaries of where adult education takes place through a candid examination of teaching, learning, and working practices in the social periphery. Lives in this context are diverse and made through complex practices that take place in the shadows of formal systems: on streetscapes and farms, in vehicles and homes, and through underground networks. Educators may be family members, friends, or colleagues, and the curriculum may be based on needs, interests, histories, and cultural practices. The case studies presented here analyze adult education in the lives of sex workers, LGBTQ activists, undocumented migrants, disabled workers, homeless youth, immigrants, inmates, and others. Focusing on learning at the social margins, this book challenges readers to reconceptualize local, national, and transnational adult education practices in light of neoliberalism and globalization.Robert C. Mizzi is Assistant Professor of Educational Administration at the University of Manitoba, Canada. Tonette S. Rocco is Professor of Adult Education and Human Resource Development at Florida International University. Her books include Transforming the School-to-Prison Pipeline: Lessons from the Classroom (coauthored with Debra M. Pane).
