Library Trials to Routledge Handbooks Online and Taylor & Francis eBooks

From January 11 to March 11, the library will be running a trial of two major e-book platforms from Taylor & Francis: Routledge Handbooks Online, and Taylor & Francis eBooks (which contains mostly Routledge titles). Both collections are strong in a wide range of humanities and social science disciplines.

Routledge handbooks online

Routledge Handbooks Online contains collections of scholarly review articles on commonly researched topics. More than 600 volumes (about 18,000 chapters) are included. The articles are useful for getting a general overview of a topic, and make good jumping-off points for further investigation. Each chapter can be viewed in HTML or downloaded as a PDF.

T&F ebooks

Taylor & Francis eBooks contains more than 50,000 ebooks—both single-author texts and edited collections. Many of these are recent publications, but the collection contains works spanning the last century as well. The majority of them are DRM-free, with no time limits or print limitations, though some do have restrictions.

Your feedback about these resources is valuable to us. Please send your comments to Nik Fogle at nikolaus.fogle@villanova.edu. We’d particularly like to know what you found useful about them, what was lacking, and to what extent you would use this material in the future. Please be sure to tell us which of the two platforms your comments are about.
