How many people can view an eBook at one time?


While the library tries to purchase an unlimited user license for all new eBooks, there are times when this is not possible due to cost or lack of licensing options. Most eBooks that we get directly from a publisher platform (i.e. JSTOR, Cambridge Core, Science Direct) allow unlimited users, while titles from aggregators (i.e. EBSCOhost and ProQuest Ebook Central) are often limited to one or three users. 

The number of simultaneous user licenses for eBooks from ProQuest Ebook Central, EBSCOhost and Scholars Portal Books is usually listed on the landing page. Please visit our eBook FAQ page for some examples of where to find this information.
