Karger ebooks now available

karger larger

The UL, the Moore Library and ebooks@cambridge are pleased to announce that Cambridge University members now have access to all frontlist and backlist series and non-series ebook titles published by Karger.

Karger Publishers is a globally active medical and scientific publishing company dedicated to serving the information needs of the scientific community with high-quality, and in some cases award-winning, research-level texts covering primarily life and clinical sciences, alongside a variety of titles of particular interest to the history of science.

Our turnaway figures from Karger are high (between 800 and 1000 over the last 3 years), indicating a significant level of interest from Cambridge researchers across a wide variety of Karger’s ebook series. We will therefore initially be providing access through an Evidence-Based Acquisition scheme, whereby all Karger ebooks are made accessible to Cambridge users. At the end of the Evidence-Based scheme, most-used titles will be selected for purchase in perpetuity. In this way we will be able to meet our users’ immediate needs as well as build our research-level collections in the biological and life sciences for the future.

Here is just a very small sample of titles now available. Click on the covers to access the titles directly:

Burns  Pulmonary medicine  Drugs from the sea  nobel prize  Language  Paul Klee  Chronic constipation  Neurologic  plant genomes  Glaucoma  Frontiers in eating  Vet

All Karger titles can be found in iDiscover or on the Karger platform, and are available on and off-campus.

This acquisition was funded collaboratively by the UL, the Moore Library and ebooks@cambridge. As usual, please contact ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk with any questions about this platform.
