Springer E-Books Print-on-Demand Deal
Currently the library's have a subscription with Springer e-books that gives us access to every book published by Springer from 2005-present in an electronic format. You can search for available titles in our online catalog or SpringerLink.
Springer is now offering a deal to our library users where if you find an electronic book that you find really useful and want to order a print copy...they'll print you a copy and bind it for $24.95 including shipping. A much reduced rate than purchasing a full price book!
Since the book is for your personal collection you have to pay...but it might be a money saver for you. When you're in SpringerLink just look for this link
