Ebook Library (EBL) is the newest resource from our VIVA membership (Virtual Library of Virginia). JSRCC partners together Virginia’s public (and some private) institutions for more purchasing power. This new collection model, called “demand‐driven acquisitions,” allows patrons to choose what books are purchased.
Through the the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA), JSRCC libraries now offer two new STEM-H eBook databases. These subject-based e-book collections provide extensive, current resources in the STEM-H related fields, and support STEM-H curricula at the college.
Springer eBooks offer high quality Springer print book publications in a digital format. This collection covers Behavioral Science, Biomedical and Life Science, Computer Science, and Earth and Environmental Science. This purchase adds over 2,000 titles published in 2013 to JSRCC’s digital collection.
SciVerse ScienceDirect eBooks includes nearly 700 titles from Elsevier’s most current 2013 collection. Elsevier is a world-leading provider of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services. This collection includes titles from Physical Sciences, Engineering, Life and Health Sciences.
Both collections can be access through the library’s catalog, or directly through the vendors’ site listed on the library’s database pages.
