WARNING! Be careful with heavy use of Preqin
Preqin puts in a page Captcha warning if you view more than 20 pages within 60 seconds – the system will assume you’re using a bot to view multiple pages in quick succession. This happens when multiple tabs are being open.
Please be mindful and do not open up too many windows/tabs when using Preqin. This will help to prevent triggering the Captcha.
If you get a Captcha warning and subsequently cannot access Preqin, please contact the library (firstname.lastname@example.org)
