The PAU Library provides book and eBook collections to help users develop knowledge and skills, explore topics of interest, dive more deeply into content, and investigate research possibilities.

A collection of print books is located at the Allen Calvin Campus. Our print book collection includes psychology and counseling publications that are not available in electronic format and is comprised primarily of recent titles covering current topics, seminal works, reference materials, and test preparation manuals. Please refer to our Circulation page for information regarding lending policies.

We are actively developing our eBook collection to leverage online availability and provide equitable access. Our eBook collection delivers broad, in-depth coverage of topics in psychology, counseling, related disciplines, and more! The PAU Library purchases eBooks by subscription and ensures they are available in full text through WorldCat Discovery and/or the PAU databases. Access policies vary and can be viewed for each item by clicking on the full-text link. Please note that publishers and vendors who supply electronic textbooks (AKA eTextbooks) rarely allow libraries to subscribe to their titles for general access, so these materials typically must be rented online through the associated publisher and/or vendor(s).

Search for eTextBooks

Electronic textbooks may be rented online. A number of different eTextbook suppliers are available, and they use different platforms for reading content.

Use the links above to check WorldCat Discovery and the PAU databases to see if an eTextbook is freely available in full text, and reach out to the PAU Librarians if you need any assistance with your search

If the PAU Library cannot provide what you need, you can find eTextbook suppliers by conducting a web search for "eTextbooks," "eTextbook rental," or "eTextbooks online." We recommend comparing prices, rental periods, and other terms and conditions. Make sure the eTextbook supplier supports the eReader platform (e.g., Kindle, Bookshelf) you prefer, if you have a preference.
