There’s still time to get your application package together!
Do you work in an academic or health sciences library in the United States? Are you an early- or mid-career librarian? Are you looking for sources of funding for a conference you’d like to attend this fall?
If the answer to all of those questions is yes, please consider applying for an APA Librarian Conference Travel Award! Through July 31, 2018, we are accepting applications for conferences taking place from September – December 2018. This includes – but is not limited to – the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference, the Charleston Library Conference, and Internet Librarian International.
The award is intended to help defray conference-related expenses for librarians with less than 15 years of experience after receiving their MLS/MLIS. One cash award is distributed three times each calendar year, and the application cycle opens and closes on a rolling basis. At this time, we are not limiting the conferences that are eligible for travel award funding. Applicants should identify the conference that best meets their professional needs and explain how attendance will support their current duties and future goals.
Learn how you can use tools and content in APA Style CENTRAL to teach APA Style and information literacy to distance and online students. Librarians from two subscribing institutions will also share specifics about how they are using APA Style CENTRAL on their virtual campuses.
Don’t support distance learning? Many of the tips covered in this session apply to using online resources with on-campus students.
1. Identify and locate APA Style CENTRAL content that can be used in bibliographic and course instruction.
2. Identify two different ways APA Style CENTRAL content can be incorporated into online resources.

The APA Handbooks in Psychology series was launched in 2011 to provide comprehensive overviews and in-depth study of specific subfields within psychology. All 28 of the Handbooks are included in the PsycBOOKS® database, and titles are also available individually.
The most recent addition to this series is the APA Handbook of Dementia, edited by Glenn E. Smith and published in May 2018.
This handbook addresses assessment, comorbidity, evaluation, and treatment of various forms of dementia, and reviews common dementias including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, and other less common dementias. It is organized into sections discussing diagnosis, epidemiology, and neurobiology (including neuropathology and neuroimaging); assessment, including cultural issues, methodology, and neuropsychology; and primary, secondary, and tertiary intervention strategies.
The handbook is intended as a resource for all psychologists and other health professionals that serve persons and families impacted by neurodegenerative disease.
