IEEE-Wiley e-books purchased

We have purchased a collection of nearly 400 e-book co-published by the IEEE and Wiley on the IEEE Xplore platform.

The collection includes some titles from as far back as 1984 but about 75% are from 2000 and later. IEEE Xplore presents its e-books as simple PDF chapters which we know readers prefer.

Up to 25 users can now access the IEEE Xplore platform at once (whether for books, journals, conference proceedings, or standards), a considerable improvement on our previous level of 15.

Catalogue records for each book will be supplied shortly, but in the meantime access is already available (incuding off-campus access via EZproxy) and you can:

Browse by Title
Browse by Subject

The IEEE-Wiley e-book collection complements the
SPIE e-book collection that we now include in our subscription to the SPIE Digital Library.
