Springer Books Available Electronically

Recently (2008) the U of Illinois Library purchased electronic access to over 8000 books published by Springer-Verlag during 2005-2008. We expect to continue this program, purchasing Springer books as electronic books rather than as printed books. The subjects in which we are purchasing Springer e-books include:

* Architecture and Design
* Behavioral Science
* Biomedical and Life Sciences
* Business and Economics
* Chemistry and Materials Science
* Computer Science
* Earth and Environmental Science
* Engineering
* Humanities, Social Sciences & Law
* Mathematics and Statistics
* Medicine

Find a book of interest:
The easiest way to locate a Springer e-book is to search the Library Online Catalog. Using the Quick Search in the Anyword Anywhere mode, search for:

+springerlink +xxxx

where xxxx is some topic of interest. E.g.,:

+springerlink + bioinform? [187 titles]
+springerlink +genom? [114 titles]
+springerlink +biol? [700 titles]

Note: be sure to put a plus (+) right in front of all words. And use the question mark (?) to search for word variations. For example, "genom?" finds genome, genomes, genomic; "biol?" finds biology, biological, etc.
