We have a trial of medical e-textbooks from Elsevier (Mosby, Churchill-Livingstone etc) until the end of August. These include really core titles like Kumar & Clark and Gray's Anatomy. The sort of e-textbooks that haven't previously been sold to libraries but only to individuals.
To access this trial go to: http://elsevieruk.pdn.ipublishcentral.com/. Ignore the login boxes to the left. Access is provided by IP recognition, not username and password.
For off-campus access, login to Apps Anywhere and launch Internet Explorer from its Web or Office folder, and then access the trial using that instance of Internet Explorer. If we subscribe we’ll setup off-campus access through EZproxy of course.
There is an FAQ about how to read, copy and print at http://elsevieruk.pdn.ipublishcentral.com/faqs.
Subscriptions aren't cheap so we would only be able to afford to subscribe to a few titles. Before committing to that we want to be sure that you find these titles convenient to use online. So after trialling these e-textbooks please leave your comments below. You can choose the anonymous option to comment without needing to have a Blogger account, but it helps if you include your name in your feedback so that we can follow up on comments.
