How to Check for an Unlimited Access EBSCO eBook

To check for an EBSCO eBook that includes Unlimited Access, find an eBook of interest and navigate to the Detailed Record.

The Detail Record contains the license information, displaying either Limited Access (1 or 3 copies available) or Unlimited Access.

For limited access titles, you may still save and use PDF chapters in your class under copyright limitations. However, if you’d like to link to the title or make the title available for everyone to view online or download at the same time, you’ll want to make sure the title has an Unlimited User Access. Please contact a librarian to ask if expanded user rights are available.

Free NaturalReader may also be used for reading ebooks (as image captures) and other electronic documents.

What is the EPUB format?

EPUB has become the industry standard format for delivering eBooks, because it enables publishers to create books with links between sections and out to the open web.
