Springer launches full book download feature

As announced on the LIBLICENSE-L listserv:

“Springer is pleased to introduce the ‘full book download functionality’ on SpringerLink and Springer for R&D in response to the high demand for this feature by our authors, researchers and library customers. This new functionality allows users to download all chapters of a book in one go. In addition to this feature, users can view an eBook on SpringerLink and Springer for R&D through the LookInside, and download the individual chapters as PDF and/ or HTML format. The chapter level and full book PDF is available to subscribed users without restrictions. The LookInside always shows some sample pages to unsubscribed users, and the full chapter to subscribed users.”
