eBook Legacy Collection
Elsevier is now digitizing valuable historical book content in central scientific collections. Transformed through technology, these new collections will be fully searchable and available on ScienceDirect. With this portfolio growth, librarians and their patrons will be able to easily access these once hard-to-find or out-of-print books digitally, saving time and resources.
Thousands of digitized titles across core scientific disciplines:
- Agricultural and Biological Sciences
- Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology
- Chemical Engineering
- Material Science
- Physics and Astronomy
“It is a wonderful thing doing research, from research comes understanding, from understanding past research comes new applications and uses. It is not a luxury but a great investment in our future.”
Book content extending back to the mid-20th century will be fully searchable and available on ScienceDirect for the first time. For the librarian it is an opportunity to bring out-of-print books back into circulation in a new and expanded way that:
- Make resources once available on a one-on-one basis and only during library hours to a wide audience simultaneously and 24/7
- Allow patrons to perform digital search and deep reference linking on material previously available only by appointment
- Complete collections and expand holdings without the burden of single issue or copy purchases
- Save on costs involved in storing, maintaining and replacing older books and resources to make these books available to their patrons
All books will feature free MARC records, as the records are a free service included in the ScienceDirect subscription.
