New ebooks

Two new collections of ebooks have recently been added to the University’s ebook collection.

All 56 titles from the Cambridge Companions to Music have been made available for the first time as ebooks. They are accessible in Cambridge Collections Online from which we now have access to a total of 467 ebooks from the Cambridge Companions series. These are all included in LibrarySearch.

The other new ebook collection is a selection of 55 titles from The Blackwell Companions Humanities Collection, mainly in the areas of history, geography and sociology. These are available on the CREDO Reference platform which allows users to list all available titles, browse by topic, or use a concept map which is a visual way of exploring information and how it is connected. Catalogue records will be loaded and searchable through LibrarySearch as soon as possible.

Many ebook collections are not searchable through LibrarySearch: around half of the University’s 27 ebook collections need to be accessed directly. Information about this and access to all ebook collections is at ebooks@cambridge. Keep up with ebook and other eresource news at the eResources etc. blog.
