The Library has a trial to the Colloquium Digital Library of Life Sciences, a collection of short (50-120 pages) electronic books (referred to as “lectures”) that synthesize a topic in the biomedical/life sciences. The lectures are published by Morgan & Claypool and are grouped in series, each having an editor prominent in the field. Sample series include: Building Blocks of the Cell, Integrated Systems Physiology, and Stem Cell Biology.
The trial is available at: http://resources.library.ubc.ca/page.php?details=colloquium-digital-library-of-life-sciences&id=2147
We are very interested in your feedback. Please let us know what you think of these e-books by completing the feedback form at:

Trial ends November 15, 2013.
