QUESTION
Good morning, the book "Molecular biology of the cell" by Bruce Alberts has additional material on a CD / DVD. How could I get access to this material? Could you email it to me? Thank you very much
ANSWER

In relation to your request we inform you that the libraries of the UPC they are closed by the pandemic and it will be completely impossible for us to go in there to look for the material that asks us what we send it by any means. We have been searching the net to find some alternative.

We tell you what we found:

- The CD you request is from the 4th ed. and now the publishing market is offering the 6th ed.
- If you search for this title on Wikipedia, there is an entry and at the end of it all it says that the 4th ed is open access, but we can't get there
- From what we have seen, the 6th edition does not have a CD to accompany it, and it is likely, although it should be confirmed, that the contents of the CD are integrated into the body of the work in its 6th ed.
- We found an option to request a copy as an "instructor", with which you could try it.
You can do this from the section Request Inspection Copy.

We hope we have been able to help.

Dear Clara

In response to your request we attach the link to the book so you can consult it:
