There are currently 164 ebooks  from 1989 to present available as an add-on (with an additional cost) to the SPIE Digital Library. The ebooks include titles from the SPIE Press series in optics and photonics:

·         SPIE Press Monographs are authoritative reference books, textbooks, and handbooks.
·         Tutorial Texts cover fundamental and emerging topics at introductory and intermediate levels.
·         Field Guides present key information that students and practicing  engineers and scientists need in a concise format.

A user guide with information about the SPIE Digital Library and tips on how to search the site is available. It also shows how to set-up RSS feeds and utilize bibliographic, bookmarking, and research tools.

This trial is available both on and off campus. Off campus access is available via Raven logins, but for off campus access, users should use the links above, the Off campus access bookmarklet or the ejournals@cambridge A-Z listing for journals. Shibboleth access (Institutional login) is being set up but is not yet available.
