News from the Library: Springer e-books in Engineering and Mathematics - now at your desktop!

Users obviously expect library collections to be shaped to meet their information needs. Today, online systems have replaced the good old "Book Suggestion Register" to help readers provide libraries with input.


Moreover, e-books lend themselves by their nature to a trial period, whereby the needs and the potential usage of collections can be effectively measured.

In this sense, the trial of Springer e-books on engineering done in October-November last year was extremely fruitful because it showed the interest of the community and provided us with essential feedback.

Following that trial, the Library now provides access to a collection of Springer e-books on Engineering published in 2012 and 2013 and also on Mathematics (2010-2013). These collections complement the Springer Physics and Astronomy and "Lecture Notes in Physics" e-books series.

As usual, your feedback is most welcome! Please contact us by e-mail.
