From the post:
Springer Science+Business Media now offers one of the largest scientific, technical and medical (STM) book collections on the iBookstore with more than 20,000 individual Springer titles. Cornerstone works in disciplines like mathematics, medicine and engineering are now available, along with selections in other fields such as business and economics. Titles include the Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology, Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, Bergey’s Manual of Systematic Bacteriology and the highly regarded book series Graduate Texts in Mathematics.
Springer is currently undertaking an exhaustive effort to digitize all of its books dating back to the mid-nineteenth century. By making most of its entire collection – both new and archived titles – available through its SpringerLink platform, Springer offers STM researchers far more opportunities than ever to obtain and apply content.
Gee, do you think the nomenclature has changed since the mid-nineteenth century until now? Just a bit? To say nothing across languages.
Prime topic map territory, both for traditional build and sell versions as well as topic trails through literature.
Will have to check to see how far back the current Spring API goes.
