Tim Siftar, our Librarian for Information Science & Technology, School of Education, and Goodwin College, has compiled an extensive list of IT and Computer Science related electronic books from Books24X7 database.
The Libraries have subscribed to Elsevier's ClinicalKey online service, which replaces the electronic content that was formerly offered through MDConsult. It offers a more robust (yet simple) searching interface and access to thousands more books and journals, as well as other sources, as noted in the following list. ClinicalKey is a comprehensive, trusted, and speedy resource for clinical information, enabling faculty, residents, and students to locate topic overviews as well as in-depth information in order to meet every day and unusual clinical challenges.

Now, e-books can be downloaded and used offline by creating a PDF of a single chapter, or installing the free Adobe Digital Editions to download an entire book. That means you can take them on the plane, overseas, anywhere!
