Not all titles are available in an eBook format, and not all eBooks are available through our licensed vendors. Available titles may limit the number of concurrent users and will not be suitable for class assignments. Budget constraints severely limit our capacity to purchase multiple copies of a single title. Available titles may require users to download third party software or apps and create a user account in order to access the eBook offline.
