eBooks for Earth Sciences 

An increasing number of books relevant to Earth Sciences are now available via EBSCO and MyiLibrary, along with a variety of University Library aggregated resources, such as Cambridge Collections Platform, the Oxford English Dictionary and a rather large back file of not just journals but also full text ebooks from Elsevier at ScienceDirect. The AGU reference Shelf provides 3 Handbooks of Physical Constants on line. The World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) 1990-2002 has produced a series of atlases available to access online.


You can access these books via Newton and through Cambridge Library Gateway on library search. Access from outside the domain is via Newton and will present you with a request for your raven username and password. Clicking on the cover images below will take you to the Newton entry or the organisation portal for each ebook.
