I don't know whether I should have known this already, but I met briefly with Palgrave MacMillan editor at the Eastern APA yesterday and learned something that surprised me: if your university's library subscribes to Springerlink, you can access and read Springer and Palgrave MacMillan books for free* through your library's access links (Palgrave and Springer recently merged). Anyway, given that I wasn't already aware of this, I figured some of the Cocoon's readers might not be aware of it either and thought it might be information worth passing on. In any case, as an author of a new book with Palgrave (and someone who likes to read books!), this came as a very welcome surprise. Academic books tend to have a pretty high price-point, so it is nice to know there are alternative ways to potentially access them!
*(Obviously, Springerlink itself isn't free - your university has to purchase a subscription. Still, if your library does have a subscription, you can personally access material free from charge).
