Note on post-1862 Google Books links


From the May 2008 edition I have started including links to sources in Google Books from the period 1863-1923. These are only supposed to be available to users in the US due to copyright reasons (actually almost all of them are in the public domain elsewhere too, but the cumbersome European copyright system requires verifying the date of death for each individual author, which is of course completely impractical for periodicals). However these papers can be accessed from outside the US by using a proxy server. I have decided against including a proxy server as part of the link in the list itself since some organizations frown upon or prohibit the use of proxy servers in their networks. Instead these links are identified by the text “(no direct access outside the US)”. In such cases you can use the “Copy Shortcut” function by right-clicking on the link and then paste the link into a suitable proxy server to access the paper.
