Note: Two concurrent users

2) InfoSci-Books -- It is a searchable database containing books and reference works in the subject area of computer science and information technology. 

3) SpringerLink eBook Collection -- It provides cover-to-cover search and browse access to the full text of eBooks in the subject areas of science and technology. Access can via the SpringerLink search interface.

4) 光波24書網 --
以中國大陸和香港近年出版的圖書為主,書籍種類包括藝術、文學、人文、商業、語言、電腦、科學等。本書網主要提供瀏覽電子圖書的借閱功能。線上瀏覽前請先下載並安裝方正apabi閱讀器,然後點擊所選書本資料上的 “點數借閱” 即可進行閱讀。

Note: Avoiding the problems of opening PDF files, please choose “自定義安裝 (self definition installation)” when installing Apabi Reader. Please do not choose the item of “將Apabi Reader設為默認的PDF閱讀器 (set Apabi Reader as a default reader for PDF format)”. 

You may also use the links provided in “Databases” on the Library's homepage or directly access their websites via the campus network for your search. Please let us know at if there is any problem encountered in use.
