Bookshelf, the books division of the NLM Literature Archive, is an online collection of full-text books, reports, databases and other documents, providing free access to over 700 texts in life science and healthcare. A vital node in the data-rich resource network at NCBI, Bookshelf enables users to easily browse, retrieve, and read content, and spurs discovery of related information. Some Bookshelf contents have a corresponding entry in PubMed. The books we host have been given to us by the publishers (we do not pay them any kind of fee). Each book is viewed as a new candidate for Bookshelf. Whether the next edition of a book comes out on Bookshelf depends on whether we have a new agreement for that edition with the publisher. The publisher must contact us with this request. You may also contact the publisher directly to request that the next edition be placed on Bookshelf.
