Basic Searching


Springer ebooks are pdfs and either the entire book can be dowloaded or you can download individual chapters. Springer titles are in SOUTHcat, so search by keyword and limit to Marx Library Electronic books. The Marx Library owns both Springer journals and Springer ebooks, so if you want only books, be sure to limit your search by clicking on the word books.

Downloading the Entire Book

Springer has recently added a new feature that allows you to download the entire book instead of just chapter by chapter. You can still also only download only the chapters you need.

Spring Download of Entire Book


Springer ebooks can also be purchased as print copies for $24.95 if you find that you need the entire book in print. Choose Buy Now below the book cover. Just remember that it is you who will be paying for this print copy, not the library!
