How Are Books Added to This Collection?

Everything in this database was purchased by the LSC Libraries (not just UP). Access depends on how many copies were purchased and/or how many uses each title is licensed for, which is set by the publishers.

Class Use

  • Books in this collection have different licenses by title, so proceed with caution if you want to assign a book to a class.
  • You can link to the overall 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.


Checking the Licensing

When you click into a book record in Ebook Centeal, an "Availability" statement is shown before the summary. Because nearly all these books are part of the subscription package, you can expect to see a statement of unlimited user access.

Below that will be lines letting you know how many pages of the book you can download as pdf and print.

In Ebook Central, a statement of "availability" is shown before the book summary. You should expect to see "your institution has unlimited access to this book."
