Introductory ebooks in engineering and computer science

Looking for good overviews of engineering and computer science topics? The library is licensing ebook collections from two publishers experimenting with an innovative model: lecture-sized ebooks (50-150 pages) on important research topics, authored by experts in the field. UC Berkeley researchers have been involved with both ventures as editors and authors.

These state-of-the-art reviews provide excellent introductions to advanced engineering and computer science topics, especially as course readings.
