Number of copies

While we have some ebooks in single copy, others we have multiple or even unlimited copies. You can see how many copies we have - see below for the different ways to determine this.

For Ebook Central books, when you open the book, it shows Availability at the top:  in this case, unlimited access.  It might say you have access to 1 copy, 3 copies, or multiple.  

For EBSCO ebooks, once you open the book (i.e. Wherever you go, there you are), you have to scroll down a bit to see the concurrent user level:

Concurrent User Level:

Limited User Access (1 Copies Available)

For SpringerLink, PsycBOOKS, Taylor & Francis, they don’t indicate the number of users; they will just show links to the individual chapter pdf’s, but the vast majority are unlimited.
