COVID-19 Update for APA Manual access

The APA Manual is only available to libraries in print due to publisher restrictions. During the coronavirus pandemic, APA is providing free access to online tutorials and quick guides.

Additional information is available on the APA Style Blog. Refer to the Online Guides listing below for additional helpful sites.

(Previously, APA had temporarily opened up the e-book for free access through two different e-book platforms, VitalSource and RedShelf, however that access expired on May 25, 2020. You can currently purchase a personal e-book copy there.)
