Morgan & Claypool Computer Science Collection e-Books

Posted by Robert Noel, Sciences Librarian

Good news for the IU Media School, the School of Informatics, and the Institute for Communication Research faculty and students – while the IU Libraries have made available Morgan & Claypool e-books on Information Concepts, Retrieval, and Services, and other informatics titles, we have recently activated over 300 e-books from their Computer & Information Science Collections.  Those teaching and doing research on topics including computer animation, gaming, wearable computing, quantum computing, intelligent systems engineering and other multidisciplinary topics should benefit from these books authored by experts at applied science universities such as Carnegie Mellon, MIT, Purdue, Rensselaer, Berkeley, and U of I.

The other great thing about this content is the no DRM (digital rights management) restrictions; integrating this content into current and future IU courses should be much easier than it is with other content that can be found.  Multiple, simultaneous users will have persistent access to these books.
