Springer Biomedical and Life Sciences Book Archive


The science libraries of UC Berkeley have recently purchased the Springer Biomedical and Life Sciences Book Archive, more than 7,500 e-book titles whose original copyrights date from 1910 through 2004. The collection includes books in the subject areas of agriculture, biochemistry, cell biology, ecology, evolutionary biology, forestry, microbiology, neuroscience, plant sciences, and soil science, among others.

These e-books join the more than 20,000 previously purchased Springer Book Archive e-book titles in five additional subject collections:

  • Chemistry and Materials Science
  • Earth and Environmental Science
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics and Statistics
  • Physics and Astronomy

Springer eBooks are available as cross-platform-compatible PDFs at both book and chapter level. Springer also offers the MyCopy print on demand option for most English-language titles.

The books can be accessed by searching Oskicat, or by searching or browsing the Springer e-book website.
