Springer Protocols trial

Hi everybody --

Until October 31st, the University will have TRIAL access to a relatively new resource, Springer Protocols.

The publisher, Springer, recently acquired Humana Press, so this resource includes protocols from Humana’s book series Methods in Molecular Biology, Methods in Molecular Medicine, Methods in Biotechnology, Methods in Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Neuromethods. It also includes protocols from a number of Laboratory Handbooks, such as The Biomethods Handbook, The Proteomics Handbook, and the Springer Laboratory Manuals .

Please give this product a spin, and let me (or your departmental librarian) know what you think of it's usefulness.
Search by discipline:
http://www.library.uiuc.edu/orr/results.php?titlesearch=springer*+protocols*&tstype=K&types =
or
Search the whole set:
http://www.library.uiuc.edu/orr/get.php?instid=946001

You might want to compare Springer Protocols with several other "Protocols" that we currently have:
Wiley's Current Protocols in.. series.
Nature Protocols
Cold Spring Harbor Protocols

Thanks!

~ Katie
