UCLA Library licenses e-books from several major publishers, including Wiley, Springer, IEEE, Royal Society of Chemistry, and more.

There are many advantages for e-books. Some include:

  • Ability to access the full text from anywhere*
  • Ability to download a copy to your computer, tablet, or smartphone for offline and future use
  • Print any or all of the pages of the book from your computer

Here we feature a small subset of the new e-books the UCLA Library has acquired on the applications of nanotechnology.
