EngNetBase main catalog links broken - Fixed!

| No Comments

CRC has developed a new integrated interface called CRCnetBASE. Princeton's engineering e-book collection from CRC, EngNetBase, is currently available on CRCNetBase. Unfortunately, links to EngNetBase books in the Princeton University Library Main Catalog were broken in the transition to the new interface.

We still have access to EngNetBase e-books. If you find a broken link for an e-book in the catalog with EngNetBase in the URL, please visit

http://www.crcnetbase.com/page/engineering_ebooks?cookieSet=1

and search for the title directly.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and hope to have the links fixed as soon as possible.

 

March 9, 2010 Update: The Catalog links have been fixed!

You may now search for EngNetBase e-books in the Princeton University Libraries Main Catalog at http://catalog.princeton.edu or at CRCNetBase using the links above.
