Anatomy of a SpringerLink Online Book

A. As a BGSU user you are not required to log in to gain access, but you can make a personal account using the link on the upper right and save books and chapters onsite.

B. Make sure the box labeled as "Include Preview Only Content" on the left is unchecked if you only want to search for available full-text resources. If the box is checked, searches will also show resources which are not currently accessible to BGSU users, and abstracts.

C. The cog icon next to the search box offers advanced search options and search guidelines.
