John, very cool, thanks!
But, a question. It states,
“Download whole book (PDF)
Partner login required”
So, how does one become a “Partner”? Do you need to be a librarian?

Yes, that is my understanding: only libraries and similar institutions can become “Partners”, not private persons like you and me.

That is what I thought, so maybe this might be of help…
