New Taylor & Francis eBooks platform

For some years ebooks@cambridge have subscribed to a collection of 250 Taylor & Francis ebooks, which since summer 2011 have been hosted on the MyiLibrary platform. During summer 2012 we reviewed this arrangement, in consultation with the ebooks Advisory Group and Faculty and Departmental librarians from Archaeology & Anthropology, Classics, Divinity, Education & Geography. This was done in the context that Taylor & Francis subscription costs were due to rise considerably in 2012 and some of the ebook titles in our collection were no longer attracting high usage. Taylor & Francis also launched their new ebooks platform this summer so we needed to make a decision as to where this collection of ebooks was going to be hosted and which titles should remain accessible.

Following extensive consultation, ebooks@cambridge have retained and purchased 62 of the most popular Taylor & Francis ebooks which are now available on the new Taylor & Francis eBooks platform. Subjects covered are Archaeology & Anthropology, Classics, Divinity, Education and Geography. These ebooks are not new to University of Cambridge users, but from Tuesday 1 January 2013 they will only be available on the Taylor & Francis eBooks platform. T&Ficon

All our current  250 Taylor & Francis subscription ebooks currently hosted on MyiLibrary will be removed from that platform at the end of the day on Monday 31st December 2012.

The ebooks@cambridge team will remove the 250 MARC records pointing to MyiLibrary from the erdb/LibrarySearch early in 2013, and 62 new MARC records containing links to the new Taylor & Francis eBooks platform will be loaded before Christmas 2012. A list of the 62 purchased titles can be found here.

A link to the Taylor & Francis eBooks platform is available on the ebooks@cambridge public collections web page, along with tips and hints on accessing the ebooks from off-campus and other useful access information.

Most of the ebooks are DRM-free and benefit from unlimited user concurrency, although 14 of them are DRM-protected; further details can be found on the ebooks@cambridge collections page.  All of the ebooks can currently be downloaded to a PC, Mac or laptop; further developments to enable downloading to mobile devices will be forthcoming and ebooks@cambridge is encouraging the publisher to prioritise these advances.

If you have any queries or comments about the new Taylor & Francis platform please email the ebooks@cambridge team on ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk.
