eBooks @ Lund University Libraries

IOP ebooks is a book program from the Institute of Physics (IOP) that initially comprises two complementary collections, IOP Expanding Physics and IOP Concise Physics. These texts are the "first book" on a topic – either the first book published on a fast-moving area or the first book for anyone looking for a current introduction to a subject. Together, the collections serve the needs of undergraduate students through to advanced students and field experts. LUB has purchased these collections: Concise Physics, Release 1 & 3 (2014 and 2017) and Expanding Physics Release 1 (2014), which includes 85 titles.
