This has come about because McGraw Hill, the publisher of Perry’s, has pulled all of its titles off of the Knovel e-book platform. In anticipation of this, to try to make up for the loss of access to Perry’s on Knovel, the UB Libraries have purchased an e-version of Perry’s on the ebrary platform, where it remains available.
However, with this move, we have lost all of the interactive features that Knovel had programmed into the book (tables that functioned like spreadsheets; interactive equations; graph plotters). This is a special feature of Knovel; Knovel makes this extra investment in certain e-texts it licenses from publishers and hosts on its platform. ebrary does not offer any such features.
In summary, we still have online full-text access to Perry’s, but on a different platform, and we have unfortunately lost the nice, value-added interactive features and tools in the text that Knovel had programmed into it.
