Ebrary usage - Accessing an eBook

IMPORTANT: In order to download content from ebrary - - the user has to set up a free account - - using the login link on the page.

In a 3-user license, only 2 users can download the book (and it becomes unavailable for anyone else to download for 7 days)…the 3rd “copy” of it stays available as read-only to everyone else who tries to access it.  However, even if 2 people have already downloaded the entire book recently, any user can still hop in and download a specific CHAPTER of the book.  They just can’t download the entire book.  So, all 50 students in a class can view the entire book online (just not download it) and if they just need chapter 4, they can ALL download just that one chapter.
