Morgan & Claypool (M&C) Publishers Synthesis Series has begun making its ninth collection of lectures available online to UC Merced and other participating UC campuses. The basic format in the collections are 50 to 100-page electronic books that synthesize an important research or development topic, authored by a leading contributor to the field. These Lectures provide more synthesis, analysis, and depth than standard research journal articles.
The first 19 records for series nine lectures are now available with a full listing of titles here. These titles can be used as textbooks with concurrent usage and no DRM.
