What are MyCopy books?
MyCopy books are printed versions from the Springer eBook Collection to which your
library provides you access via SpringerLink. MyCopy complements the Springer eBook
Collection and enables you to choose the content format that best suits your individual
research needs. You may opt for the eBook format or the printed book – whatever you prefer.
MyCopy books have a colored soft cover, with the interior being black and white. Thus,
colored illustrations in the eBook and conventional Springer print books are always
monochrome in the corresponding MyCopy book.
What is the price of a MyCopy book?
Every MyCopy book is available at 24.95, including shipping and handling. It is available
to you at this price because your library subscribes to at least one Springer eBook package.
Taxes are applied for some countries and are reflected during the checkout process.
Who can buy MyCopy books?
MyCopy books are only available to SpringerLink users that are patrons of a participating
library that owns and/or subscribes to at least one Springer eBook Subject Collection.
How many MyCopy books can I order?
The total number of eBooks that you may order depends on how many Springer eBook
Subject Collections your library has. If your library provides access to the complete
Springer eBook Collection, you have the ability to order over 39,187 eBooks. The total number
of books that you may order is not restricted, but you may only order a single title once.
Please note that MyCopy books are for individual use only and are not for resale.
