About the SpringerLink Collection

The University has purchased a large ebook collection from Springer (which now includes those published by Palgrave).

These books cover science, technology, mathematics the humanities, social sciences and business, published from 1997 to the present.  All books in the collection are available on an unlimited basis so many users can use the same book at the same time. 

How to Search the SpringerLink Collection

Springer Ebooks reside on the same platform as Springer Journals. Not all books and journals indexed here are freely available to John Jay patrons. An icon of a lock will appear next to the item if an item is only provided for preview.  You can exclude Preview-only content by un-checking the box "Include Preview-Only".  Use the filters to limit your search to a content type such as Ebooks or Journals.

Searching for a Springer eBook is equivalent to searching for a Springer journal.  From the home page you can either search for a phrase in
the search bar or browse through titles. Search results will appear as journal articles, book
chapters or reference work entries.

Printing in SpringerLink

There is no limit to the number of pages that can be printed from Springer e-books after you open the pdf.
