New Subject eBook Collections in the Sciences & Engineering for Fall 2019

eBook imageHoward-Tilton Memorial Library has acquired a number of new eBook collections in topical areas related to the Sciences and Engineering for Fall 2019.  Each collection will cumulate hundreds of titles throughout the year.  As each title is published, it will get an individual record in the library catalog, and can then be located via the main search box on the  library web site or browsed among the other titles on publisher platforms often linked to the library's databases list

Faculty can link these kinds of digital resources, generally at the individual title level, directly to course materials such as syllabi or class session documents in Canvas.  For directions see https://libguides.tulane.edu/course_materials.
