Several campuses have selected to participate in a Tier 2 for an eBook collection from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
This collection, divided by imprint dates, has a front list consisting of 35 titles released from 2010-2012 which the seven following campuses will receive: Berkeley, Irvine, Los Angeles, Merced, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz. In addition, Merced will also obtain the 2007-2009 list of 27 titles and Berkeley will receive the full collection of 309 titles, including the backlist.
These books cover the following subject content: power and energy; computing & management; history of technology; electromagnetic waves; telecommunications; networks; radar, sonar and navigation; circuits, devices and systems and renewable energy. MARC records will soon be added to all holding libraries’ catalogs for each title. Simultaneous users can access a given title.
