Why are Springer Ebooks providing a "Buy Now" option?

OSU provides you with free online access to many Springer Ebooks. However, Springer also provides you the option to purchase your own printed copies of OSU-subscribed ebook titles at discounted prices.


Discounted Purchase Option for Print Copy


If you find a Springer ebook that is not available for immediate download, but you think we should consider adding it to our collection, please let us know by submitting a Purchase Request. If you just need to view a copy of the book, you can also submit an Interlibrary Loan Request.
