NCBI Bookshelf

Axe Library is now providing access to freely accessible e-books available on the NCBI Bookshelf. As of July 3rd, the growing collection contains more than 70 books on subjects such as neurochemistry, hematology, cancer, cardiology, biology, endocrinology, genetics, and microbiology, among other topics. To search for the books, you may access the library’s catalog on the library’s website at by subject, author, title, or title keyword. Alternatively, you may search the NCBI Bookshelf by entering a search term or phrase at Each book page has a navigation bar that functions like a table of contents while others have a search box so you may search the contents. All figures, tables, and boxes are hyper linked where cited in the text, as well as in the navigation bar of the section they are first cited. Some illustrations are in color. The books are full text and pages may be printed or downloaded. As the NCBI Bookshelf is freely accessible, there are no restrictions on use and no user id or password is required to access.

For assistance in accessing the e-books or doing a search, you may access the online help page at
