Can I order a print copy of an electronic book if the e-book comes from Springer?
Yes, you can use the Springer MyCopy option:
Look for the link above "Buy a Print Copy of this Book" which will appear only on those books that are eligible for this service. Click the link, fill out the form and provide payment information.
Springer will send you the copy. You must not re-sell the title or put it into a public collection (such as a library) to circulate.
There's no issue with non-UVic people using the service because the service is included as part of our ebook license agreement and provides the option to supply a personal print copy for everything that we have already purchased in e format.
