The Library is now receiving Springer books as e-books rather than as print books. If you are looking for a Springer title published later than 2007, it will only be available online at UIUC. At the moment, the online catalog is not completely up to date with these titles, so you may not find the book if you only search the catalog. Instead, go to the books tab on the Library Gateway, enter the title in the search box, and select "Title Words" from the drop-down box. This search will check the UIUC Online Catalog as well as the UIUC database of Springerlink titles, which is maintained separately. If we received the title as an e-book, it will be listed under "Springer e-books."
Alternatively, you can click "Springerlink" on the Mathematics Library's Find Books & Journals page and search Springerlink directly. If you find the book you want and there is a green box to the left of its title, you can access it electronically. If the box is red, you cannot.
I-Share and Interlibrary Loan requests for print versions of Springer books available at UIUC as e-books will not be filled unless a patron has a physical disability that impedes his or her use of the electronic version. You will need to print copies of the chapters from the PDF files if you prefer reading these books in print.
"Doklady" is a word in many journal titles published countries that belonged to the former USSR on a variety of physical science topics. All of these journals are linked by the main title word "Doklady", their titles have changed over the years, and, at least in the Mathematics series, the English citations of articles are numbered differently than those published in Russian or another Eastern European language. The main title that Mathematics receives in both Russian and English is Doklady Adademii Nauk, which is currently translated as Doklady Mathematics. You will find the English version at the call numbers 506 SAINM to 506 SAINM1a and the original Russian at 506 SAINA to 506 SAINA 1. However, it can be extremely frustrating to figure out which version of which journal you want when you're searching the catalog, even if you have a citation for your article, so definitely ask for help if you have any problems or questions.
The Mathematics Library receives many materials in several different languages. Our reference collection contains many language dictionaries for translation assistance. If this is not the help that you are looking for, many language departments on the U of I's campus have lists of individuals willing to work as translators. You can call the department's main office and ask for such a list. Keep in mind that this is not a free service; you will likely have to pay some sort of fee for this assistance.
You may also want to search either (or both) MathSciNet or Zentralblatt MATH to see if an English version is available.
Finally, you may use Ulrich's International Periodicals Directory, available in print at many libraries around campus and also online.
