Morgan & Claypool (M&C) Publishers has two full-text series of short books acquired as a Tier 2 purchase:  Synthesis and Colloquium.  The Colloquium Digital Library of the Life Sciences is now in its third series and continues to span biological, genetic and biomedical subjects as reflected in 17 different series.

Colloquium 1, 2 and 3 collections (http://www.morganclaypool.com/page/lifesci#series) are now fully available. The following campuses are participating in this resource: Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside, San Diego, San Francisco, and Santa Barbara.

Records for individual titles in all completed series have been activated and distributed to the campus catalogs and as others become available they too will be added.  These M&C resources, edited and authored by leading scientists in their fields, are more expansive than a journal article, but not as exhaustive as a reference work and can be used to enhance understanding, support coursework and learn about developing areas. Sometimes due to their organization, they are known as lectures.

For more information about the Morgan & Claypool series, both available and forthcoming content, please contact the Resource Liaison, Julia Gelfand (jgelfand@uci.edu).
