Because, hey, look at that. Turns out the primary author has it up on his
website, and Google Scholar has indexed it.**

The takeaway? My very expensive discovery layer that gives access to our
very expensive databases which we purchase in a Big Deal model cannot find
this early access article in a reputable journal, but a library employee
with access to Google can find the author’s archived copy of this article
about the cost of the journal Big Deals, and thereby found the website in
which much of Bergstrom’s supplementary material is also housed. And it
probably took her less time to find it than it took me to fail.

Nah. Nothing’s broken here.
