APA Library E-book Collection
The American Planning Association Library E-book Collection gives APA members online access to a selection of hundreds of planning books that can be downloaded and accessed immediately from anywhere in the world.
The collection includes e-books and audiobooks covering a wide range of planning-related topics from renowned publishers. Also available are historical resources that have been converted into digital format for the first time.
How It Works
APA members can log into the APA Library E-book Collection through OverDrive. Members log in using their APA member ID or email address and APA password.
Planning books downloaded from the APA Library E-book Collection can be read using a computer, tablet, smartphone, or e-reader, although accessibility may be limited by the formats available for each title.
Titles can be borrowed for two weeks and can be renewed if no one else has them on hold. Members can check out up to five e-books and can have up to three e-books on hold at a time.
APA members have the option of using several different e-book formats through OverDrive. Which format you pick depends on how you want to read the e-book and what formats are available for each title.
Accessible on your computer in Adobe Digital Editions, in your Internet browser through the OverDrive website, on your tablet or smartphone in the OverDrive app, or on a non-Kindle e-reader such as a Nook or Kobo. To transfer an EPUB book to an e-reader, you will need to have an Adobe ID.
