CAB eBooks goes live
11 April 2008
CABI’s world-renowned book collection can now be purchased digitally with the launch of CAB eBooks. Through developing its own web-based portal, CABI can now provide customers with digital copies of its publications from 2000 - 2008.
Over 140 titles in the applied life-sciences are now available in the front file collection (2005-2008), growing to 200 titles by the end of 2008. A further 230 titles are also available in the archive collection (2000-2004).
The front file collection can be purchased as a yearly subscription with unlimited user access. The subscription includes constant updates with the latest CABI titles. The archive collection is available as a one-off purchase, providing research institutions with an opportunity to invest in valuable back list titles.
In addition, CAB eBooks is fully integrated with CAB Abstracts, our online bibliographic database, and employs its comprehensive tools. Each chapter is indexed and abstracted individually to ensure that specific slices of information can be easily retrieved.
Shaun Hobbs, Global Director, Content Development, CABI said:
“The granular nature of CAB eBooks makes it an excellent resource for students and researchers to gain a snapshot of opinion or research from a particular chapter. Quickly and easily the information is delivered straight to their desktop. The unlimited user access also makes this a great tool for libraries.”
The eBooks are available as a complete package, or in six separate subject collections: agriculture; animal and veterinary sciences; environmental sciences; human health, food and nutrition; leisure and tourism; and plant sciences.
