We purchase e-books from a variety of vendors, each with a different licensing agreement and interface. Some publishers may allow only a single user at a time to access the content.
Information for Classroom Use
If you are considering using an e-book from our collection for your class, please contact your subject librarian so that we can ensure we have a multi-user license in place.
The best practice for posting materials from e-books is to link to the content. See the Association of Research Libraries' Resources for Teaching Faculty or the more concise What You Can Do chart for more information about copyright and fair use.
These vendors serve as third-party aggregators who have negotiated with various publishers to offer titles on their respective platforms. Each publisher sets the digital rights management (DRM) conditions that control how much users are allowed to print and download.
