New Books at John C. Hitt

May New Books at the John C. Hitt Library

New books to the left of you. New books to the right of you. New books on the shelves. New books all around.

New books enter the UCF Libraries system on a regular basis. At the John C. Hitt Library, we select those with interesting titles, eye-catching dust jackets, or timely topics to feature on a display. The books range in subject from photography, science, and history to poetry, novels, and biographies. The display, which is next to the seating area at the Research & Information Desk, changes on an almost weekly basis.

Stop by. Maybe there will be one you want to take home with you.

Here is a small selection of the 50 books that are currently on the display:

Announcing Springer Nature Experiments – Methods and Protocols for Life Sciences

Research protocols and methods are critical to plan an experiment and ensure reproducibility, but can be very time-consuming to discover in typical databases.  Springer Nature Experiments  is a new, free-to-use, research tool to help you easily find and evaluate relevant protocols for life sciences experiments. The platform uses advanced knowledge models to categorize content based on techniques and organisms – the two most commonly used search categories identified in user research. With the help of cutting-edge artificial intelligence and text mining technologies, these terms are recognized and extracted from the content, enabling users to perform searches and narrow down their results quickly and easily.

Check out Springer Nature Experiments  and also take a look at the other Springer Nature journals, books, and databases brought to you by the UCF Libraries:

Over 25,000 scholarly ebooks in science, technology, and medicine.

Reproducible laboratory protocols in the Life and Biomedical Sciences.

Research platform dedicated to information on materials, their properties and uses.
