Finding E-Books

Many of the e-books in the ebrary, EBSCO (EBSCO titles are still called "NetLibrary" in SOUTHcat), and Springer collections can be found in the SOUTHcat catalog. Use the tips, tricks, guides, and tutorials given under the Finding Books tab and look for "Marx Library Electronic Books" in the Location field. We also have electronic copies of some of our print books - these will show up with a note of "Title has multiple holdings" in your results list.

Springer Ebooks

Springer Ebooks

The Marx Library subscribes to Springer's 2005-2010 English/International ebook collection with access for one year to book series back to 1997. We've also recently added 2011 collections. Sort your results by date so that the books we have access to will appear first. You can also tell if a book is part of our collection if the square to the left of the title is green.

Searching in Springer will bring up journal articles and book chapters mixed together. If you would like to limit to book chapters, look to the panel on the left of the screen, click on "Content Type" and choose "Book Chapters."
