IEEE Ebooks

We have acquired through the California Digital Library the collection of IEEE Ebooks. There are ~400 books in this collection!

This is one of those moments when I am truly thankful to be part of a large system.

For those of you who are already familiar with IEEE Xplore, you will be glad to know that this means you now have access to all of the ebook content in the system.

Some sample titles:

Adaptive Antennas for Wireless Communications
Fiber Optic Essentials
Intelligent Image Processing
Sensor Network Operations

The books will all show up in Scotty soon, but feel free to browse them at IEEE Xplore!

Happy Reading!

SPIE eBooks

Due to the continuing generosity of the other UC libraries we have acquired access to the SPIE ebooks!

Welcome to SPIE eBooks, the new online source for three valuable series of SPIE Press titles in optics and photonics:
  • SPIE Press Monographs are authoritative reference books, textbooks, and handbooks.
  • Tutorial Texts cover fundamental and emerging topics at introductory and intermediate levels.
  • Field Guides present key information that students and practicing engineers and scientists need in a concise format.

SPIE eBooks launched with 120 books in January 2010; 15 to 20 new titles and editions will be added during the year. As new books are published, they will be available in SPIE eBooks first.
