Very useful information, especially for distance learning students like myself. The access is only to Routledge chapters, not to full books. This feels like a try-before-you-buy deal more than a library service, though. Search refinements, such as logical operators and wildcards didn't work, which meant that I had to scroll through everything in a category to see what was available. I gave up at page 14 as the page took ages to load. All in all, a nice idea, but the functionalty could be improved.
