For newer and older acquisitions, here are some good places to check:

  • WU Libraries Catalog
  • eBooks and eJournals
  • Becker Medical Library Catalog
  • MOBIUS catalog [Requesting paper books from MOBIUS is a very efficient way to get titles we don’t own.]
  • Springer ebooks (We don’t buy them all but we do have physics, computer science, medicine, biomedical & life sciences, and mathematics & statistics packages. While we plan to buy packages yearly, actual payment for each new year is often delayed; for example, in later 2018, there will be 2019 titles we do NOT have access to until we are invoiced for the 2019 package. Sorry for that delay!) NOTE: Sometimes supplemental materials are available at
  • Taylor & Francis ebooks (We have access to many because of our SciTechNetbase/CRCnetBase subscription)
  • ScienceDirect ebooks (Becker Medical Library buys several packages which we can use)
