eBooks @ Lund University Libraries: Cambridge Core


Cambridge Core is the new academic platform from Cambridge University Press that replaces Cambridge Journals Online and Cambridge Books Online and combines content from both. Please note that Lund University does not have access to all content on Cambridge Core. LU has purchased 2534 ebooks and subscribes to ca 400 journals (September 2018). To search the platform for titles owned by LU, refine your search by checking the box 'Only search content I have access to'. Please note that a small number of ebooks on have six (6) concurrent users.

Cambridge Core is an open platform which means that you can preview abstracts, book descriptions, reviews, and content and index PDF's for all titles, but fulltext is only available for owned titles. For more information about Cambridge Core, please view the Cambridge University Press YouTube channel.

Information för bibliotekarier
Cambridge University Press lanserade i juli i år digitala läroböcker på Cambridge Core-plattformen. Läroböckerna är riktade till studenter på både grundutbildning och högre nivåer inom ämnena vetenskap, teknik, matematik, samhällsvetenskap och humaniora. Till att börja med finns 300 titlar, men fler beräknas publiceras efter hand liksom nya upplagor av befintliga läroböcker. Än så länge har LUB bara köpt en (1) lärobok enligt denna nya modell:
Wilson and Walker's Principles and Techniques of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 8th edition (access t o m 2019-09-09)

Villkor för de digtiala läroböckerna

  • Inköpsmodellen är annual-lease, dvs en bok kan inte köpas utan hyrs på årsbasis
  • Läroböckerna kan köpas titel-för-titel, dvs en titel åt gången om man så önskar
  • Alla läroböcker har obegränsat antal samtidiga användare
  • Det tar minst 15 dagar för CUP att sätta upp åtkomsten för läroböcker så var ute i god tid före kursstart
  • Om en ny upplaga av en titel man hyr publiceras inom hyrperioden har man möjlighet att göra en uppgradering

Restriktioner

  • Läroböckerna kan inte laddas ner och man kan inte skriva ut, inte ens enstaka sidor.
  • Läroböckerna kan därför heller inte sparas och läsas offline
