Is there a digital equivalent to new book smell? Well, if there is, then this announcement is that, multiplied by 7,175.

We are pleased to announce that Rutgers University Libraries have purchased of over 7,000 e-books from Springer Nature, a major scientific and scholarly publisher.

The collection contains new e-books published in 2016 on 14 different subjects in STM (Science, Technology, and Medicine) and Social Sciences, including Business and Management, Economics and Finance, and Education.

“Rutgers students are excited to learn about the Springer collection,” says business librarian Mei Ling Lo. “I know of at least one course where they are using our e-books this semester and the savings are substantial.”

According to Lo, students taking the course Aggregate Economics are required to read Macroeconomic Policy: Demystifying Monetary and Fiscal Policy by Farrokh Langdana. The list price for a print copy of this book is $89.99. An e-book version costs $69.99. But thanks to the Springer e-books collection, Rutgers students can access and download a PDF of this book for free with one click or purchase an affordable paperback copy for $24.99.

More reasons to celebrate:

  1. Springer e-books are popular at Rutgers University. Usage of other Springer e-book collections increased 60% from 2014 to 2015.
  2. The books can be accessed by members of Rutgers community on campus or remotely via the Libraries website.
