New ebooks – October/November

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that there was no ‘New ebooks’ blogpost last month; the ebooks@cambridge team was just a bit too busy processing the start-of-term flood of requests (all very welcome of course). We are making up for it this month with a double issue for October and November.

As usual, the covers below are just a taster of the titles added to the ebooks@cambridge collection* during October and November. A complete list of ebook purchases is available to Cambridge library staff to download from the ebooks@cambridge section of the Cambridge Libraries Intranet.

All of the titles can be found in iDiscover. Alternatively, click on the cover images below to access the titles via our authenticated links.

*Titles purchased by, or on behalf of, department and faculty libraries within the University of Cambridge and by the University Library.

Open Book Publishers are “changing the nature of the traditional academic book”

OBP1Open Book Publishers was founded in 2008 by a small group of academics at the University of Cambridge.There are currently 67 published and 18 forthcoming titles spanning subjects including  Anthropology, Archaeology & Religion, Digital Humanities, Economics, Politics & Sociology, Law, Literature & Language, Mathematics, Philosophy, and Women & Gender Studies. To see a full list of published monographs and if you want to find out more about the vision behind OBP, their website is available from here and an interactive electronic version of their Winter 2016 catalogue can be found here. You can click straight into the full-text of the ebook version from within this catalogue.

OBP’s academic monographs are published in hardback, paperback, PDF and ebook editions, and they also include a free online edition that can be read online via the OBP website, and embedded anywhere. OBP titles are free to share and re-use, through Creative Commons licences.

OBP are challenging the standard “reproduced” ebook format by creating interactive ebooks, incorporating moving images, links and sound into the text. Their more traditional titles are complemented with freely available digital resources, including extra chapters, reviews, links and image galleries. These resources can be found alongside the relevant ebook on their website.

To read the ebooks directly from the website click on Read the PDF or Read the HTML buttons on the front page of each book title. To download a PDF, epub or mobi version of a title, just click on the relevant download button, as shown in the sceenshot below.


OBP ebooks can be found in LibrarySearch, and can be accessed by anyone from anywhere in the world, no Raven login required.

Cambridge University Library is a member of the OBP Library Members Scheme.
