4. Where do I find literature on my topic? Finding e-Resources

More and more e-publications become available. Most journals are online only. Because of package deals with major publishers, some journals beyond CWI's scope of interest are accessible as well. Also e-proceedings are increasingly available, especially those published by ACM.
Springer ebooks are available as of 2005 - CWI acquired the Computer Science, Mathematics & Statistics and Engineering collections and has cross access to Physics & Astronomy. In addition a number of older volumes are also available plus all volumes published as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), Lecture Notes in Control and Information Science (LNCIS), Lecture Notes in Mathematics (LNM) and Lecture Notes in Physics (LNP).

How can I find e-resources?
In the Discovery catalogue URLs are added. However, it is impossible to keep up with all the changes and new additions with regard to the wider availability of e-publications, also in other subject fields.

In order to locate e-resources there are two additional tools at your disposal.

eResources Title List
This list provides access to available e-publications. You can find most - hopefully all - eResources (including eBooks and eProceedings) from various sources. Entries are sorted on the titles only. Author or editor entries are not provided. There are no entries to articles or book chapters. Sometimes more than one link is available, which is often the case with open access publications or publications which are in part available from archival sites like JSTOR.
Springer eBooks are only included as of 2005 although we do have access to earlier volumes.
