Digitizing the History of Psychology

AHAP book digitaztion machine

A team sponsored by the APA has scanned 1,056,249 pages from the Archives of the History of American Psychology in Ohio. To date, 54 historical out-of-print books have been added to the PsycBooks database. When the digitization project is done, however, this figure will reach 2500. Boxes and boxes of “grey literature,” including conference proceedings and division newsletters, are also being scanned for inclusion in PsycExtra.
