Springer is offering two more language-specific ebook collections, in French and Italian. The French collection is comprised of about 330 titles, and the Italian collection offers over 400 titles. These collections aim to address the needs of the French- and Italian-language research communities who now have the option of accessing relevant scientific content from medicine, mathematics, computer science, and other fields. The Italian package is available in three subject collections, while the French package can be purchased in two subject collections.
Springer launched its ebook program in 2006 and now offers more than 100,000 titles via its online platform, SpringerLink. With the completion of the Springer Book Archives by the end of 2013, the total number of titles is targeted to reach well over 150,000 ebooks, including valuable historic research dating back to the 1840s. The French- and Italian-language ebooks were previously available only as part of the larger English/International package.
