The UC Libraries have purchased most of the Springer ebooks published from 2005 to 2009. This purchase builds on our existing access to Springer book series to greatly expand our ebook collections.
Each book chapter is available as a PDF file without digital rights management (DRM): these files can be downloaded, printed, and even transferred to a PDA or Kindle. Eventually, these ebooks will be linked from our catalogs and UC-eLinks. In the meantime, you can search or browse all of them directly at SpringerLink, or by choosing one of the collections below.
Books are available in the following subject collections:
- Architecture and Design
- Behavioral Science
- Biomedical and Life Sciences
- Business and Economics
- Chemistry and Materials Science
- Computer Science
- Earth and Environmental Science
- Humanities, Social Sciences and Law
- Mathematics and Statistics
- Physics and Astronomy
- Professional and Applied Computing
Note: A few Springer ebooks are excluded from this purchase because they have been jointly published with another publisher.
This purchase will help the libraries to study the viability of ebooks, including such factors as preferences, behaviors, and usage. We will be soliciting feedback from our users regarding the advantages and disadvantages of the electronic format for their specific disciplines.
Library users can also take advantage of Springer’s MyCopy print-on-demand service.
Through the MyCopy service, you can order your own personal softcover copy of many Springer ebooks for $24.95 (including shipping & handling). To purchase a personal copy, look for the Buy a Print Copy of this Book for $24.95 Including Shipping link or the orange MyCopy box when viewing a Springer ebook.
Over 11,500 titles are available through MyCopy with more titles added all the time. Currently, only English-language titles from 2005 forward with fewer than 832 pages are eligible for this service.
If you have questions or feedback, please contact your librarian.
