What is Applied Behavior Analysis
“Applied Behavior Analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior“
Baer, D.M., Wolf, M.M., & Risley, T.R. (1968). Some current dimensions of applied behavior analysis.

Quick Library Links
Most of the library resources on our web page are accessible to ESU students, faculty and staff when you are working from off campus. PILOT, the library's online catalog, does not require a username/password for access so anyone can search it.
Most of our databases are also available to our students, faculty and staff from off campus locations. You will need either your 9 digit University ID number (if you have an older ID use the last 9 digits of that 15 digit barcode) or your University username/password to login successfully. Be sure to go to the Library's web page to access the databases.
