Over 3,000 books are included. Springer ebooks can be downloaded by chapter or completely, used by multiple users, and are permanently a part of the WU collection. We also have Springer ebooks packages for 2005-2015 for Medicine, Biomedical and Life Sciences, Mathematics and Statistics, Computer Science, 1984-2015 for Springer Protocols, and 2005-2007 for Behavioral Science.

Access is available now and titles are included on Get it! and the A-Z ejournals and ebooks list already. They will be added to the holdings in the catalog soon. You may also search and browse on the publishers' platforms at ScienceDirect and Springer. In a few cases we may have the back-volumes but NOT have current volumes online. Eventually, paper volumes will probably be withdrawn if they are included in these purchased holdings.
