E-books on demand@UCL – De Gruyter e-books

By Anna Sansome, on 1 November 2017

New publisher added to E-books on demand@UCL

As part of the E-books on demand@UCL scheme, UCL Library Services is now offering access to over 29,000 e-books published by De Gruyter, its imprint Birkhäuser and its partner publishers Böhlau Verlag, DETAIL, Gütersloher Verlagshaus, Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS) Publishing, Multilingual Matters, Otto Schmidt Verlag, RWS Verlag, Transcript and Verlag Dr. Otto Schmidt.

Access started on 1st October 2017 and will run until 30th September 2018, when we will review the usage and decide which e-books to add to our collection permanently. You can find all these e-books by searching Explore. Judging by October’s usage, these e-books are proving popular but if you have any feedback then do let your Subject Librarian know.

E-books on demand@UCL is designed to involve UCL staff and students in the selection of e-book content. Since the scheme started in 2014, UCL users have been able to read and download thousands of extra e-books across a wide range of subjects and over 7000 e-books have been purchased as a result. Go to our Ebooks on demand@UCL webpage to find out more about the various projects.
