Over 2,000 Elsevier Ebooks Now Available

Various ebook covers from Elsevier ScienceDirect

The UCSF community now has online access to over 2,000 Elsevier ebooks, thanks to the Library’s recent purchase of ebooks published on the ScienceDirect platform. Elsevier’s imprints include Academic Press, Churchill-Livingstone, Elsevier, Mosby, and Saunders. The purchase is comprised of:

  • More than 600 books in subject collections published between 1995-2006
  • Over 1,500 “Evidence-based Selection” titles published in 2007 and later. With Evidence-based Selection (EBS), UCSF gets unlimited access to the selected titles for one year. At the end of the 12 months the Library will pick which titles to purchase permanently based on the usage throughout the year. This EBS process allows us to identify the titles most valuable to UCSF.

Subjects covered:

  • Biochemistry, Genetics, & Molecular Biology
  • Dentistry & Clinical Dentistry
  • Medicine & Clinical Medicine
  • Health Professions
  • Immunology & Microbiology
  • Neuroscience
  • Pharmacology, Toxicology, & Pharmaceutical Science
  • Psychology
