Don't know whether there's a policy change (if so, it hasn't been "officially" announced) or some sort of firewall/IP-checker/security failure, but I'm suddenly able to get full access to all of the non-public ebooks over at the University of California Press Escholarship site. This means that nearly 2,000 books are available instead of just the 519 public-access titles. I have no idea how long this is going to last, but I recommend getting in there ASAP if there's something you've been dying to read (or at least skim through).

For those not familiar with the site, here's the complete subject list; lots of VERY good material on gender studies, GLBT, literature (American, British, Asian, etc.), philosophy, anthropology, history, Medieval, and much much more! All the illustrations from the original printed books are included and you can run searches for specific terms/phrases in the texts (the books' indexes have also been completely converted to text links).

Enjoy it while it lasts, folks!
