News from the Library: Trial access to Springer Engineering e-books - test it and let us know!

The ambition of a state-of-the-art research library is obviously to shape its collections to meet the needs of the different communities of readers that it serves.


To this end, we try to expand our (e-)book collections to provide better coverage of subject areas where such a development is needed. The good news is that the CERN community now has the opportunity to access the whole collection of engineering e-books published by Springer between 2005 and 2012.

The trial period ends on 30 November 2012 and will help us to monitor usage and better shape our collections accordingly. This valuable collection is available and searchable here.
