4,000 e-Books now available on ScienceDirect

Amsterdam, 10 September 2007 Elsevier, a leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical (STM) information, today announced the availability of more than 4,000 eBooks on ScienceDirect. eBooks on ScienceDirect comprise high-quality selected titles published from 1995 to the present. These include scientific and technical books spanning 18 subject areas, as well as books from renowned imprints including Pergamon and Academic Press. The launch is a major expansion to the reference works, handbooks and book series already available on ScienceDirect.

The eBooks on ScienceDirect program will, for the first time, make virtually all of Elseviers Science and Technology academic publication catalogue of books fully searchable. eBooks will be linked not only with other referenced book series, handbooks and reference works, but also the worlds largest repository of full-text journal content. This development offers researchers a significantly broader perspective of their field of study, from a single industry leading interface.

eBooks on ScienceDirect allows researchers to search and retrieve all relevant information published in books and journals on one easy-to-use platform, ensuring results in a broad range of information within various trusted sources, said Joep Verheggen, Director, ScienceDirect, Acquiring eBooks on ScienceDirect enables librarians to use their institutions budgets wisely and to best serve users by providing simultaneous access and quality information in a credible, familiar environment.

The launch of eBooks reflects ScienceDirects ongoing commitment to developing new content for users. eBooks will be included within the existing ScienceDirect platform, eliminating the need for users to learn a new interface. The 2,000 Book Series and Handbooks volumes and more than 55 titles of reference works already on ScienceDirect will be linked to eBooks and the Cited By feature. This will allow users to cross-reference citations with existing books, journals on ScienceDirect and on abstracts and citations within the Scopus database.

eBooks on ScienceDirect is an integral part of University Libraries strategy to broaden access to scholarly materials through the investment in and provision of online content, said James Bierman, Engineering Librarian at the University of Oklahoma.

ScienceDirect plans to add approximately 700 newly published titles each year. To review the list of titles available, or to inquire about signing up for eBooks on ScienceDirect, please visit
