Through the end of December, UC Berkeley has trial access to Springer eBooks as part of an ebook pilot project undertaken by the UC Libraries. While we already license a number of Springer book series online (including Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Lecture Notes in Physics, and Topics in Current Chemistry), this trial expands our access to more Springer ebooks.
The trial is limited to English-language Springer electronic books published between 2005 and 2008. During the trial, you can search across the entire collection or browse by subject, and you can print or save book chapters as PDF files. After the trial, access will be restricted to the collections and series that we purchase.
If you have any questions or comments about the trial, please contact Brian Quigley.
