About SpringerLink


Springer journals and books. If WU Libraries subscribe to or has purchased a particular title, it may be accessed full-text on the web. All titles may be searched.

You can now order your own personal soft cover copies of many books available online from springerlink/books via the Springer MyCopy service. When we have fulltext online access to a book (see list of purchased collections, below), if the MyCopy service is available an orange link ["Buy a Print Copy of this Book for $24.95 Including Shipping"] appears on the Springerlink record. More info on MyCopy.
