Share this on social media:

Four major universities and research institutions in Sweden have adopted Springer Book Archives (SBA) Springer’s retrodigitised e-books. Chalmers University, the University of Stockholm and KTH The Royal Institute of Technology have purchased the complete English-language selection consisting of more than 56,000 titles in 11 subject collections. The University of Borås has acquired six subject collections.

Springer Book Archives totals around 110,000 e-books of which about half are in English and half in German. It contains newly digitised titles published by Springer since its founding.

'We are happy to add parts of the Springer Book Archives to the Springer content that we already offer to students and researchers at our university library,' said Svante Kristensson, director for library and learning resources at the University of Borås.  'More than 50per cent of our total collection is now electronic, which makes us a truly digital library.'
