All titles are fully searchable. The Springer ebooks are fully integrated with the Springer Online Journals for convenience. All collections include publications from 2005-2008. As USF does not provide access to all 28,000 titles on the Springer site, titles owned by USF are flagged with a green icon. The collections acquired by USF are:
