New e-Resources - over 14,800 University Press Scholarship Online e-books

Over 14,800 new University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) e-books have now been added to SAULCAT, the Library's online catalogue.

University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) brings together the best worldwide scholarly publishing, and allows monographs from leading University presses to be accessed through a single, searchable online platform.

UPSO offers titles in over 28 subject areas of the humanities, social sciences, sciences, medicine, and law, from the following leading University publishers:
As well as being listed in SAULCAT, you can find these e-books in SEEKER, too. 

We have trial access to these e-books until the end of 2016, due to the new SHEDL (Scottish Higher Education Digital Library) agreement.

At the end of the trial, the Library will use the usage statistics to identify and purchase the most heavily-used titles for permanent access. 

St Andrews will also have permanent access to all the other UPSO e-books bought by other SHEDL libraries, after the trial ends
