SIAM to launch ebook library

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics have announced that they will soon release the 400 titles they publish available as a subscription based digital library. From the SIAM website:

In January 2011, SIAM books will expand their availability and ease of access by launching a new e-book program.

  • Universal: stored in PDF files, readable on all browsers and computers
  • Convenient: viewable by chapter and searchable by keyword and chapter heading
  • Secure: hosted on the same reliable AIP/Scitation platform as SIAM journals
  • Innovative: easily cross-searched with SIAM journals by readers and researchers

Now, for the first time, the SIAM library of approximately 400* books will be available for institutions to offer to their users electronically, via purchase or subscription. Access the complete text of SIAM books in all 14 of SIAM’s book series. Books published by SIAM throughout 2011 will be available online immediately upon publication. (*The January launch will include ~ 200 titles. The remaining ~200 will be added over the next few months.)

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
