New e-Resources - 464 new Palgrave e-books

464 new full-text e-books from the 2015 Palgrave Connect Collection are now available. These are listed via the links below, and will appear in SAULCAT, very soon:

New titles will be added weekly, until September 2015, when the 2015 Collections will be complete. 

We already have access to all Palgrave Connect e-books published between 2011-2014, through a trial access agreement brokered by the SHEDL (Scottish Higher Education Digital Library) collaborative purchasing consortium.

At the end of the trial, usage statistics will be used to identify the most heavily-used titles for permanent-access purchase.  This Evidence Based Selection model is an economical way of acquiring titles in greatest demand for a low upfront cost.

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