APACover

The new edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association continues to draw comment from its users. The whole affair has become newsworthy: Inside HigerEd ran a story last week, Correcting a Style Guide. Comments to the story include a link to a petition that demands that the APA replace all copies of the first printing, at no charge.

At Koerner Library, we’ve added pockets to the front of our copies and placed printouts of the corrections in them. We’ve asked our book supplier to obtain replacement copies from the second printing for from APA, without UBC Library having to pay any additional charges.
