Springer and ANKOS ANKOS consortium has been using Springer journals since 2001 with great success. In 2003, some member libraries enquired about access to Springer E-Book Series. Until then, only METU and Tubitak-Ulakbim had subscriptions to the paper versions of some of the Book Series. From March – May 2003, all 34 ANKOS members who use Springer Link tested the Book Series on a free trial.
