The science libraries of UC Berkeley have recently purchased the Springer Biomedical and Life Sciences Book Archive, more than 7,500 e-book titles whose original copyrights date from 1910 through 2004. The collection includes books in the subject areas of agriculture, biochemistry, cell biology, ecology, evolutionary biology, forestry, microbiology, neuroscience, plant sciences, and soil science, among others.
These e-books join the more than 20,000 previously purchased Springer Book Archive e-book titles in five additional subject collections:
Springer eBooks are available as cross-platform-compatible PDFs at both book and chapter level. Springer also offers the MyCopy print on demand option for most English-language titles.
UCB patrons can now access the 2012 LandScan data through EastView Cartographic?s web interface. Oak Ridge National Laboratory produces the annual LandScan datasets through population modeling algorithms, creating a roughly 1km resolution global population distribution map. The LandScan Global Archive data is available for the years from 2000 to 2012. The data can be explored directly through EastView's web map interface. Alternatively, you can download datasets by country or through a user-defined custom area for use in a GIS program.
