Springer now offers online access to 37,000 historic, English-language eBooks with the launch of the Springer Book Archives. The SBA will be completed by the end of this year, and when finished researchers, students and librarians will be able to access more than 170 years of science through 100,000 titles, available anywhere, at anytime, via SpringerLink.
Rudolf Diesel, Paul Ehrlich and Emil Fischer are among the notable names who will appear in the SBA when it is complete. Overall, the work of more than 200 winners of the Nobel Prize will appear in the SBA, proving that at Springer great minds don’t go out of print, they go online.
