Palgrave Political & International Studies eBook collection 2012

A total of 183 eBook titles from the ‘Palgrave Political & International Studies collection 2012’ are now available in Library OneSearch.

LLR has been working extensively with Palgrave to generate title-level deep-links for the eBook records in the collection which will work for both on-campus and off-campus requests; and a working solution is now in place. (The format of these links may change in future, but the records themselves will persist with their current LMS identifiers). Access to all titles is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus.

Example entries the new collection include American military intervention in unconventional war; Understanding collective political violence; The future of entrepreneurship in Latin America; and Authoritarian party structures and democratic political setting in Turkey.

As well as providing online and downloadable .pdf formats for all titles, selected eBooks from Palgrave Connect are available for download/upload to a range of eBook readers in the EPUB format. Palgrave Connect employs “permissive DRM, enabling users in subscribing institutions to download ebook content without any physical restrictions”. For more information, see the Palgrave Connect FAQs on DRM and the EPUB format.
