If you have an institutional sign-in to Springer Nature then you have the opportunity to download free soft copies of hundreds of text books. Springer Nature has taken this admirable initiative in support of worldwide learning and teaching institutions which are currently closed because of the Corona virus pandemic.
Simply click on this link and then download an Excel spreadsheet giving details of all the books on offer, including a download URL for each one.
A number of disciplines are supported. I’ve secured some from the astrophysics, programming and philosophy sections, such as :
- Keeton’s reference work “Principles of Astrophysics”
- Hunt’s “Advanced Guide to Python 3 Programming”
- Johansson’s “Philosophy of Science for Scentists”
Don’t miss out – the offer runs until the end of July according to the web page at the above link.
