New Titles Added in January

The big news this month is the addition of a large ebook collection.  We have acquired the entire 2012 catalog from Springer, consisting of nearly 5,000 titles, covering a wide range of disciplines, such as mathematics, physics, life sciences, chemistry, environmental science, and many of the social sciences.  These books can be viewed and downloaded to a variety of devices, without restriction (the Springer model provides unlimited downloads by chapter).  If you have any questions about using the ebooks, let us know.


We are in the process of loading these records into the library catalog (should be done within a week).  In the meantime, you can use the direct link below to search the collection at the Springer site.
