Extra Materials for Springer E-Books

Posted by eleres on 3rd February 2010

Springer has released print books with supplementary content on CDs and DVDs. However, this content is not included in the e-books Springer offers. Rather, they have posted supplementary content to their Springer Extra Materials site.

If you find a Springer e-book through our catalog or the SpringerLink site and the contents are incomplete, note the ISBN and search for it on the Springer Extra Materials site. The UMass Amherst Libraries have Springer e-books published in English between 2005-2008.
