STEM-H ebooks now available

The library is pleased to announce the acquisition of two new ebook collections from Springer (a well-known and respected global scientific publisher) and Elsevier (a leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services). Both of these collections were generously funded by the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA) and support the areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and health (STEM-H).

The Springer collection consists of four subject areas--behavioral science, biomedical and life science, computer science, and earth and environmental science--and will provide access to over 2,000 newly-published frontlist titles.

Elsevier's SciVerse ScienceDirect ebook collection offers approximately 700 books published (or soon-to-be published) in 2013. This collection consists of titles appropriate for a variety of science, technology and health courses.

Both of these collections are accessible via the catalog, as well as directly through the vendor's platform. Links are available below.
