IoP eBooks collections

We have now have access to the Institute of Physics new eBooks collection. This is made up of two complimentary collections:

IOP Expanding Physics publishes high-quality texts from leading voices across the research landscape on key areas in physics and related subject areas.

  • Authoritative texts – a leading voice on a topic
  • Very high production quality
  • In-depth texts – 200–500 pages
    • Research monographs
    • Graduate/advanced undergraduate textbooks
  • Aimed at recent graduate/researcher level

View the first titles from the IOP Expanding Physics collection.

IOP Concise Physics, developed with Morgan & Claypool Publishers (M&C), focuses on shorter texts in rapidly advancing areas or topics where an introductory text is more appropriate. These texts will be the “first book” on a topic – either the first book published on a fast-moving area or the first book for anyone looking for a current introduction to a subject.

  • Concise – 70-120 pages
  • Rapid publication – the first book on a topic
  • Interdisciplinary – physics for physicists and non-physicists
  • Aimed at undergraduate/researcher level

View the first titles from the IOP Concise Physics collection.

5 titles have been published so far and the other 30 are due between now and January 2015.

These titles are all searchable via Library Search – search for “IOP eBooks” will bring up the contents of both collections.





Stock movement within the Central Library over the next few months

This summer sees a reconfiguration of parts of the Central Library (including some building work) which will mean some areas of the print collections will be inaccessible at certain times.

Physics books (classification numbers 53 and 530 – 532) currently located on Level 2 will be moved up to Level 4 sometime in June. They will be temporarily unavailable during the move.

Mathematics books (classification 51 and 510 – 519) and Astronomy / Astrophysics books (52 and 520) will be moved into the basement for the summer (accessible via the Store Service) and then be re-housed on the newly refurbished Level 3 (formerly the SML) in time for the beginning of the Autumn term in October 2014– they will be unavailable for a short time while moves are taking place

Print journals held on Level 4 will be moved to the newly refurbished Level 3 by the beginning of the academic year and will also be temporarily unavailable while they are moved. If you do need material that is inaccessible at any time you can request it via Document Delivery.

We will keep you fully informed as to exact dates when we have them.

If you have any questions please get in touch.
