For e-textbooks, please scroll down page.
Shown below is a small sampling of available e-reference books.  Some of these eBooks are available through our subscription to Knovel, a collection of science and engineering eBooks,which allows full-text searching of all titles.  SpringerLink is an additional valuable resource for eBooks. SpringerLink eBooks will appear in the OSU catalog, but there is a delay between acquisition and appearance in the catalog. Therefore, going directly to the SpringerLink site is advised. The National Academies Press makes all its books freely available.
