Elsevier Expands Its Legacy Collection To More Than 9500 Books

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the expansion of its Legacy Collection on ScienceDirect. Elsevier’s Legacy Collection now includes more than 9500 books with contributions from more than 100 Nobel Laureates.

The Legacy Collection digitizes classic historical scholarly book content. Many of these newly digitized foundational books were difficult to find in print or out-of-print altogether. Having this content secured and fully integrated on ScienceDirect enables digital searching and deep reference linking on this historical reference material, completing library collections and expanding holdings without the burden of locating or borrowing.

The expanded content now covers 15 subject areas, including:
  • Agricultural and biological sciences
  • Biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology
  • Biomedical science and medicine
  • Chemical engineering
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and planetary sciences
  • Energy
  • Engineering
  • Environmental science
  • Materials science
  • Neuroscience
  • Pharmacology, toxicology and pharmaceutical science
  • Physics and astronomy
  • Psychology
  • Social sciences

“Some might wonder why researchers would be interested in historical content, some of which dates back to the 1950s,” said Suzanne BeDell, Managing Director of Elsevier’s Science and Technology Books. “Much of the content in our Legacy Collection provides the foundation for science as we know it and researchers often refer back to important, original texts to get a better understanding of the research they are doing today.”

Elsevier’s Legacy Collection is available on ScienceDirect, a full-text scientific database offering journal articles and book chapters from more than 2,500 peer-reviewed journals and more than 11,000 books.
