Getting into Springer ebooks

We are getting a lot of enquiries at the moment from people who have logged into Springer ebooks but are being confused by the ebook landing page.  If you find yourself staring at a page like the one in the annotated image below, you can safely ignore the offer to sell you a printed paperback copy and instead click on the bright blue button beneath the title to open the pdf ebook.

As always, if you think you are being charged for something you should be able to access for free, please chat to us online and we will be happy to advise and where possible provide rapid access.
