There's an APA Update

APA Style has been updated and is now in its 7th edition. It will take a while for textbooks and library databases to catch up, so you will continue to see examples for the 6th edition for a while yet. However, if you want to get a sneak peak, we have purchased several print copies of the newly updated style manual. 


Ebook Central has Bible Studies

The Ebook Central database includes many titles from the NavPress Publishing Group, which puts out the LifeChange Series of bible studies. Below are just a few examples.
