Beginning in 2020, a new OhioLINK agreement gives us access to all Cambridge University Press, University Publishers Online and Cambridge Elements titles published since 2015. (Excluded from this agreement are Cambridge Histories, Cambridge Companions, and institutional textbooks.) All new titles will be added as they are published through 2025. In 2025, OhioLINK will purchase a subset of all titles for permanent access. In addition, 190 Cambridge ebooks published in 2014 and 2015 that were purchased previously will remain in the collection.

About Cambridge Elements: "Cambridge Elements are a new concept in academic publishing and scholarly communication, combining the best features of books and journals. They consist of original, concise, authoritative, and peer-reviewed scholarly and scientific research, organised into focused series edited by leading scholars, and provide comprehensive coverage of the key topics in disciplines spanning the arts and sciences."
