OhioLINK has recently signed an agreement with Springer Publishers to purchase a large number of their books in electronic format. The collection may be browsed or searched at http://proxy.lib.muohio.edu/login?url=http://www.springerlink.com/books/ (a link will be placed on our web site shortly). A wide variety of subject areas are covered in the collection.
We currently have access to 5,321 titles published between 2005 and 2007, with an additional 1,806 titles from 2007 expected to become available before long. There are currently some 16,000 e-books available through the SpringerLink address given above, and the ones that MU students, faculty, and staff may access are those with a green square by their titles (after clicking on a given title and selecting a chapter, click on the PDF link on the right side of the screen to view the chapter in full-text). It is OhioLINK's plan to link our purchased titles from their own server in the near future to make browsing and searching more clear.
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments on using these titles. Other notable e-book collections available through OhioLINK include NetLibrary, Electronic Reference Books (ABC-CLIO), and the History E-Books Project
