How Are Books Added to This Collection?

Ebook Central is a big subscription package, though we do have the ability to purchase licenses for individual titles. This means that most of the books in here are part of one big package (as opposed to individually selected by the LSC librarians), and that books will leave the collection sometimes when their license is up.

Class Use

  • Books in this collection tend to be unlimited users, which is exactly what you want if you're going to assign a reading to all your students.
  • You can link to the over all book, as well as specific chapters or even a specific page.
  • You may download portions of the book as a pdf to post in your D2L classroom.
  • Be sure to use the permalink in the toolbar to link students to the text.


Checking the Licensing

The last piece of metadata on the book's "detailed record" page will tell you the "concurrent user level," whatever it may be (from limited access, 1 user all the way through unlimited user access).

The "Publisher Permissions" line just above will let you know how many pages you're allowed to download and print.

E-book license info comes at the end of the metadata in EBSCO Ebook record page.
