Springer Briefs

UTC Library provides electronic access to Springer Briefs, a collection of over 2,200 unique pieces of research covering a variety of subject areas. These titles will be especially useful for researchers in engineering, business, and the sciences. Each piece of research falls between 50 to 125 pages, allowing authors to present a more in-depth treatment of their research than would be possible in a journal article.

Included in this collection are titles like “Evaluating and Promoting Positive School Attitude in Adolescents,” which discusses ways to create a positive school attitude and sense of well-being in a learning environment.

“Activating the Tools of Social Media for Innovative Collaboration in the Enterprise” looks at ways that social media can improve employee satisfaction and achieve specific outcomes for businesses.

Finally, a look at “How Likely is Extraterrestrial Life?” allows users to see how current scientific knowledge can help us decide whether or not life exists on other planets!

All of the Springer Briefs are available through Springer Link or via the library catalog, WorldCat Discovery.
