Elsevier Launches Ebook Legacy Collection on ScienceDirect

Elsevier announced it has digitized its Legacy Collection in seven disciplines, significantly expanding its content on ScienceDirect. With the addition of the Legacy Collection to ScienceDirect, highly relevant, scientific books from the mid-20th century to the present will be accessible online as early as December 2012.

Librarians at academic, corporate, and government research institutions now have the option to rapidly expand their book collections and researchers can access additional context for existing material, complementing current content across a rich range of sources. Usage patterns for existing deep backlist books on ScienceDirect provide ample evidence that researchers continue to use books published before 2000 in their work.

The Legacy Collection content on ScienceDirect provides additional scientific strength in the following subject-based collections:

  • Agricultural and Biological Sciences
  • Biochemistry, Genetics, and Molecular Biology
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Chemistry
  • Engineering
  • Materials Science
  • Physics and Astronomy

Title-by-title lists can be found here. The Legacy Collection marks a significant expansion of the ebook content available on ScienceDirect, which features more than 15,000 books and 2,500 journals along with more than 11 million articles, a content base that is growing at a rate of almost 0.5 million additions per year, with archives that reach as far back as 1823.
