During the month of February, the UST Libraries will be trialing the GeoScienceWorld (GSW) eBook Collections. The UST Libraries already have a subscription to the GeoScienceWorld database and GSWorld eBooks would be an add-on to that platform. The platform is cross-searchable, allowing users to search eBooks, all 46 journals on the GSW platform, and nearly four million GeoRef records simultaneously.
GSW eBooks are from 10 respected publishers in the geosicences, including the Geology Society of America. Other features include:
- Responsive design for easy reading on any mobile device
- Unlimited access and downloading
- Downloadable, DRM-free PDF chapters
- Downloadable images
- Ability to view larger versions of images
Please try out this database and give us your comments. Click on GeoScienceWorld (GSW) eBook Collections to access the trial site.
This trial runs through February 28, 2019. Please send your comments to Karen Brunner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
