The common e-book collection of the CSIC Library and Archive Network has increased by 3,630 new titles in 2020, adding to the current e-book collection of 556,027 titles. These books acquired in the months of May and June are already activated and available to everyone. The titles, by Brill, the Institute of Physcis and Springer, complete and update the collections of these publishers that have existed until now in the CSIC Virtual Library.
In order to support digital education and research continuity, and help mitigate the impact Covid-19 is having on institutions, De Gruyter and its associated publishers are offering free access to thousands of e-books until June 30.
These are 75,000 DRM-free e-books with a publication date between 1650 and 2016, which the CSIC has already activated for access.
