E-Book Publishers` Collections

All e-books which are either licensed by the library or part of MPG-wide consortial packages are searchable via our OPAC - with the only exception of Proquest data.
The MPG-E-Books-Catalogue combines all MPG-wide accessible e-books and offers more sophisticated search and filter options for these packages.
This annotated list informs about publishers` portals of licensed collections which are relevant and advisable for convenient browsing; full text search functionalities are most often offered as well:
