Have an APA citing question? Need a list of professional journals in your field? Can’t find a college-level article that explains the PRO-CONS of a topic? Need an eBook on <name your topic>?

We will help answer all of those questions – and yours, too. Contact a GRCC librarian via:
The American Psychological Association (APA) announced a revised version of their Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association in a 7th edition last Fall. The APA announced that the new version would supersede the 6th edition during Spring 2020 semester, and most GRCC academic departments decided to make the move to the 7th edition this semester.
