From Elsevier:

Many of these newly digitized foundational books in the Legacy Collection were difficult to find in print or out-of-print altogether.

This allows libraries to complete collections and expand holdings without the burden of locating or borrowing. - See more at: http://www.elsevier.com/about/press-releases/science-and-technology/elsevier-adds-five-new-subject-areas-to-legacy-ebook-collection#sthash.SzYbhuTs.dpuf
