Q. How do I know if more than one person can access an ebook?

Access to ebooks can depend on the publisher or platform providing the title. 

  • These examples highlight some of our ebook packages and available access.
  • If you are unsure if the ebook title provides the access needed, please contact us.

1. EBL / Ebook Central

Availability information is provided for all Ebook Central (EBL) titles. Look for Availability and the statement beneath.

"Your institution has unlimited access to this book" means that there are unlimited simultaneous users.  There are no limits on access.

 

"Your institution has access to multiple copies of this book" translates into 325 total uses within one year are available at our institution.
