APA Style Central Free trial is now available

APA has developed a new product, that provides online access to their resources, in 4 areas:  students, teachers, research, and publishing. Not all these four areas will be equally useful for our students (such as publishing), but each has something to offer.

Fleming has a temporary trial to this product, and APA encourages as many interested people as possible to try it out. The access will be available for 30 days from 9/5/2016 to 10/5/2016.
