Complete collection of Wiley ‘o’books now available!

Wiley Online Library banner

The University Library have arranged a pilot which opens up full-text access to the complete Wiley ‘o’ books collection, currently comprising almost 15,000 monograph titles, hosted on Wiley Online Library. The ‘o’books are immediately available from here.

This collection includes all Wiley monographs published in all available subject areas across all publication years. Subjects covered include Agriculture, Chemistry, Earth Space & Environmental Sciences, Humanities, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences & Engineering, Social & Behavioural Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine. This collection will grow as new titles are published.

The catalogue records for these Wiley titles are loaded into LibrarySearch and Cambridge librarians can identify them as they are tagged Wiley EBA trial. Wiley ebooks are available both on and off-campus (using a Raven login).

Available titles are indicated with a golden unlocked padlock icon as illustrated in the following screenshot.

You may browse for titles alphabetically, by subject, or search for a known title, and you can filter your search by publication type. Wiley Online Library allows users to select and read chapters online, or print or save them as PDFs. There is unlimited concurrent access.

Please note that Wiley etextbooks are not included in this collection.

The access will continue until the 30th April 2015 in the first instance. This is a usage based purchase model which means at the end of this period it is likely that the most popular titles in the collection will be retained.

The ebooks@cambridge team and the University Library are keen to know what you think about this Wiley ‘o’books collection, please send any comments or questions to ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk.

    This looks like a great resource!

    To see what titles are available in chemistry or other discipline you can scroll down to the bottom of the list linked to below and then click on Browse by subject.

    Or you can go to the main Wiley Online Library website at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/ and click on Browse. Click to select Chemistry, for example, then perhaps Analytical Chemistry, then on the right hand side of the screen is a list of Topics you can browse, or underneath images of book/journal covers you can click to View all products in Analytical Chemistry. You then see a list of the titles and you can click on these to access the content.
