I welcome your requests and suggestions for library acquisitions. Email Ruth at or use forms, Recommend a Purchase for the Library or Recommend a Journal Purchase or Cancellation. Please specify format when you have a preference; while there are good reasons to buy ink-on-paper book or ebooks when they are available on user-friendly platforms, I would prefer to avoid stretching our limited budget to buy BOTH formats of the same title.

Springer ebooks: Supplementary materials released with the print books (CD-ROMs, for example) are made available to the purchasers of the ebooks at Because I get these lists from compilations at Springer, there are always newer books available (which I will post next month). If you are looking for a book from Springer or a Springer-related publisher, it never hurts to search at”Book”.
