PharmacyLibrary relaunched on Literatum

The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) has relaunched PharmacyLibrary.com, its pharmacy education and reference website, on Atypon’s Literatum online publishing platform. Atypon now hosts APhA’s core library of 44 pharmacy reference and technician training eBooks, case studies, educational materials, and board review tools for NAPLEX, the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam.

The site includes Literatum’s newest feature – an interactive exams module – which was custom-built for APhA and is now available to all Atypon clients. The module gives students a personalised dashboard for creating customised practice tests on the fly – by subject area and/or level of difficulty – from more than 3,600 questions. The dashboard then dynamically displays content recommendations from APhA’s library that are tailored to each student’s test results and based on areas where the greatest improvement is needed.

'Our new ability to capture user-level analytics and make changes to the site’s interface and content, including board review questions, will enable us to respond more quickly to the changing needs of our users, and expand our content offerings,' said Elizabeth Keyes, chief operating officer at APhA. 'PharmacyLibrary is a unique platform offering users leading book content, multimedia, learning tools, and a sophisticated board review module. We were impressed by how quickly Atypon’s solution architects were able to incorporate these different elements and create such a complex website from scratch.'

Atypon’s engineers created a full-featured site in 10 months. 'Literatum’s new exam module is bringing assessment technologies to the entire community of Atypon publishers,' said Georgios Papadopoulos, Atypon’s founder and CEO. 'The assessment tools underlying the NAPLEX review deliver new value to existing content and create new revenue streams.'
