RIT Libraries recently acquired Collections 3, 4, and 5 of Morgan & Claypool’s Synthesis Digital Library of Engineering and Computer Science. Each collection is comprised of approximately 125 books that synthesize an important research or development topic. These topic areas are called Series (ex. Biomedical Engineering, Computer Vision, Mobile & Pervasive Computing) and each book in the Series is referred to as a Lecture. The Synthesis Digital Library offers an easy introduction to new fields of study with each Lecture. Since Lectures are published as soon as they are completed, they allow faculty and students to stay current on a wide range of topics. The Lectures may be downloaded in PDF format in their entirety for scholarly use making them ideal for course readings. Lectures vary in length from 100-200 pages. For best results, search the Synthesis Digital Library regularly. Click here to browse Series by Subject. Records for each individual Lecture are also discoverable in Summon and the Library Catalog.
