429,118+ e-books; 595,000+ print book titles and rising ...

You may be surprised to know that we have access to:
  • over 429,118 full-text e-books
  • and more than 595,000 print books (over 830,000 items, if you count multiple copies of books, etc)

    - and that this number continues to grow on a daily basis.
184,118+ = e-books which have been individually subscribed to, and ones which form part of e-book packages that we buy e.g. Springer e-books. Details of all these books can be found in SAULCAT

180,000+ = e-books in the Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO) database

- all books published in Great Britain and its colonies during the 18th Century, along with thousands of important works from the Americas. These will be added to SAULCAT

= Nineteenth Century e-books from the British Library - digitised first editions from the 19th Century, in philosophy, history, poetry and literature; over 25 million pages of previously rare and inaccessible content.
These will be added to SAULCAT

12,000+ = e-books included in our current Cambridge Books Online trial, which runs until 9 July 2012. These are all listed in SAULCAT.

595,000+ = the current number of print book titles in the Library - this rises to 830,000+ individual print items, if you include multiple copies of books, print periodicals, etc.
