New e-resources - 2,149 new e-books on ScienceDirect

2,149 new Elsevier e-books on the Science Direct platform have now been added to SAULCAT. 

Until 28 Feb 2016, we have subscribed access to these e-books due to the new SHEDL (Scottish Higher Education Digital Library) agreement.

From 1 March 2015, we also gain access to the 2015 ScienceDirect e-books, until the current agreement ends on 28 Feb 2016.

In total, this will give us access to approximately 2,854 titles (2010-2015 e-book collections).
