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

The print book collection 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, older 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, which allows us to provide equitable access to the vast majority of our materials for current students, faculty, and staff. 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 the WorldCat Discovery library catalog 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) no longer allow libraries to subscribe to their titles for class access, so students should plan on purchasing their textbooks through the PAU Online Bookstore.
