More E-Books at York

York has recently subscribed to e-books from Springer and Oxford Scholarship Online. I have made all the links available from the Kinesiology research guide.

Students can also go to some of the individual e-book providers from here:

  • Canadian Health Research Collection (monograph publications from Canadian research institutes, government agencies and university centres working in the area of health and medical research)

Other Atlases include the Sheep Brain Atlas, Dolphin Brain Atlas, and The Axolotl Brain Atlas.
