All eBooks are available to read online. Some are available to checkout for a specified period of time. There are several things to keep in mind:
EBooks can be unlimited user access or have a limited number of copies available for simultaneous use. Even though eBooks are digital, they are still copyrighted material and usage rights are up to the publishers of each book.
Unlimited user eBooks can be read/checked out/ downloaded by an unlimited number of students at the same time. These are marked unlimited access in this guide. These are the only textbooks we would ever recommend substituting for your own purchased copy.
Single-user books can only be accessed by one user at a time for each copy. However, most offer the ability to download/email limited portions of the book. Each eBook record includes details regarding how much of it can be saved to a PDF. We do not recommend substituting these for purchasing your own copy, as they could be unavailable to you when needed.
The number of pages you can save or email may vary depending on individual publisher-specified limits. To learn how to save, print, or email eBook Chapters, see: How can I print or save EBSCO eBook pages as a PDF?
If you are using a laptop or desktop, you need Adobe Digital Editions software program to download EBSCO and ProQuest eBooks.
