IOPscience logo

The Betty and Gordon Moore Library and the ebooks@cambridge Service are pleased to announce that titles from two complementary, born-digital ebook collections, IOP Expanding Physics and IOP Concise Physics (Release 1), are now available for registered Cambridge staff and students. These titles serve the needs of undergraduates and researchers.

IOP Publishing states that Expanding Physics titles are “high-quality texts from leading voices across the research landscape on key areas in physics and related subject areas.” There are 10 available titles in this collection.

Concise Physics titles “developed with Morgan & Claypool (M&C), focuses on shorter texts in rapidly advancing areas or topics where an introductory text is more appropriate. These texts are the “first book” on a topic – either the first book published on a fast-moving area or the first book for anyone looking for a current introduction to a subject.” There are 25 available titles in this collection.

IOP ebooks allow unlimited concurrent usage and are available on and off campus (with a Raven login). The titles are published in HTML, PDF, and EPUB formats, and can be downloaded or read online.

The 35 titles are searchable in LibrarySearch and you can access them on the supplier platform from here.

You can also find a list of the titles in both collections (Release 1) here. (Owing to technical issues there are currently 12 extra titles available which are not part of the owned collections, the publisher is aware of the issue and is working to remove these as soon as possible.)
