How Are Books Added to This Collection?

Most titles 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.

Some books are part of a DDA (demand-driven acquisition) program.

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.


Check 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 total pages you're allowed to download and print.


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