eBooks – Library Collections

To order eBooks, Library customers will need to:

  • Request our eBook Collection lists to select what you would like to trial and/or order from publishing.sales@csiro.au  We will also send you a draft license agreement to review.
  • You may choose to trial the entire archive collection or create a flexible collection by selecting the titles that best suit your subject interests. Flexible collections need to be at least 25 titles. Pre-purchase frontlist collections are also available from 2012.
  • After titles are agreed, an invoice will be generated for your purchase as well as a licence agreement that includes details of the collection you have chosen. Return a signed copy of the license along with payment so we can activate your collection.
  • We will provide instructions on how to use the administrative portal, and support for your designated administrator on managing your collection.
  • Ongoing help desk support will be available at publishing.help@csiro.au
