Very Short Introductions Online – yes we’ve got it for you!

Very Short Introductions BannerFollowing an incredibly enthusiastic response during the trial period, the ebooks@cambridge service and the University Library is very pleased to announce that the Very Short Introductions series published by Oxford University Press is now available online for University of Cambridge users.

You can access the ebooks from here, both on and off campus (with a Raven login) and all the titles are available with unlimited concurrency.

Catalogue records will be searchable in LibrarySearch very soon and updates to the collection will be added on a monthly basis.

This series offers concise introductions across a wide range of subject areas; Arts & Humanities, Law, Medicine & Health, Science & Mathematics & Social Sciences.

You can browse by subject or search the collection of currently 372 titles, and you can search at the chapter level. You can create your own personal profile which will give you the option to save titles you are reading, copy, paste and annotate the text.

Please email ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk with any questions.

PS. Your favourite title during the trial was Leonard Smith’s Chaos, here are a few more for you to try…

Psychology     Humour          Ice age
