CRC Press has launched a new interface for its netBASE e-book collections. The new CRCnetBASE interface allows for more advanced searching and browsing and offers book chapters in hi-res PDF format or as PDF with links. Users will also now be able to register for free accounts and save books and chapters to a virtual bookshelf.

All netBASE collections, with the exception of CHEMnetBASE, have migrated to the new interface and are now searchable as an entire collection. CRCnetBASE is one of UC Berkeley’s largest collections of engineering handbooks and manuals and cover areas such as civil engineering, mechanical engineering, math, environmental sciences, and more.
