Thousands of new e-books available from the turn of the year

14 mars 2019

During 2019, the Library is carrying out four different projects with user driven acquisitions. In short, this means that all users have access to a large number of e-books (just over 60,000 titles) via the Library's search tool and Libris. Ultimately, only those titles actually used during the projects are purchased and retained, the rest will be removed from our catalogues.

From Springer, there are about 11,800 e-books in the subject areas of technology, science, medicine and social science from 2018 and 2019. More titles from 2019 will be added during the year.

From JSTOR we get access to about 44,000 e-books in the humanities and social sciences. The titles are mainly from various University press publishers, most of them from Princeton University Press, the University of Toronto Press, Yale University Press and the University of California Press. The publication years range from 1852 to 2019.

From ProQuest, there will be e-books in medicine, technology and science.
