OCUL expands resources with Springer eBooks

Share this on social media:

Springer has signed an agreement with the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) to provide all of its member libraries with the complete Springer eBook Collection, 2005 – 2008.

Over 12,000 Springer eBooks will be made available to nearly 400,000 students and faculty within OCUL through the consortium deal. The Springer eBook Collection, comprising of textbooks, monographs, reference works, handbooks, book series and encyclopedias will be available via electronic access on Springer’s online platform, SpringerLink. SpringerLink also includes millions of articles from Springer’s peer-reviewed journals and reference works.

Alan Darnell, Manager, OCUL scholars portal said: ‘We are especially excited about this agreement because it provides the consortium with rights to load the Springer e-book content on OCUL’s own search systems. The Springer e-book content will be fully integrated with the significant e-journal collections already loaded on OCUL's Scholars Portal platform.’
