Once you find an ebook (there will be an icon with an "e" or "eBook"), either click on the pdf or EPUB link if available, to go right into the book.
Clicking on the title, will take you to the detailed book record, and you can click on the pdf link (or an epub link) to read the book, or click on a certain chapter from the Table of Contents.
Note that the Publisher determines how many users can use the book at a time. Many of our books have "Unlimited User Access" which means an unlimited number of users can view the book at the same time.
If there is a limited number of users, you may want to download, or check out the book, so that you can guarantee that you will have access to it, just like when you check out a print book.
If you can't access the book, all the licenses may be in use or it has been checked out. You can put a hold on it, if you want to read the book once it is returned.
If you want to download/check out an ebook, see our Downloading ebook guide.
