AMS ebook purchase - The Library will be purchasing the backfile of Mathematical Surveys and Monographs. The purchase covers 169 volumes published between 1943-2010. 

Overleaf Training - On September 20 trainers from Overleaf are coming to campus to give a session on advanced Overleaf. Recently ShareLaTeX and Overleaf merged. The session will be held in Annenberg at 1:00pm. Register for the class here.

EndNote - Visit the Endnote cancellation page to learn about how to migrate your EndNote library to Zotero. Alternately be in touch with the library about license needs for your group.

Cambridge Ebook Program - The Cambridge EBA program is coming to an end. We've purchased ~60 titles of the 300 we've had access to. Please visit the title lists to see if there are any books that you'd like to download before we lose access. I expect we'll have another program like this again next year.
