We are pleased to announce that the UB Libraries now subscribe to ebrary Academic Complete, a dynamic collection of over 120,000 e-books across a wide variety of academic disciplines. About one quarter of them are sci/tech/medical titles. Included are hundreds of titles from publishers such as the National Academies Press, Wiley, Oxford, MIT Press, World Scientific, IOS Press, and Cambridge University Press.
There are four very important points regarding this resource:
1) These titles will NOT appear in our library catalog since titles will move in and out of this subscription service. We will not have access rights to any of these books beyond our three-year contract.
2) These titles can be searched via the default “Everything” search box on the library home page or as a separate database.
3) Ebrary Academic Complete is a cost-effective approach to providing access to many more e-books than we could ever afford to purchase outright.
4) Downloading and printing restrictions are listed clearly on the details page of every e-book. Most e-books allow for unlimited simultaneous use and as such are appropriate for use in courses.
