How many people can look at an eBook at the same time?

Most eBook collections the Library subscribes to allow multiple concurrent users, enabling you to access the title you want, when you want.

However some eBooks do restrict access e.g. Dawsonera Managed User Access eBooks may allow only 3 concurrent users. We only buy eBooks with restricted access as a last resort. 

If you try and access a restricted eBook when someone else is using it you should get a message alerting you to this. Some platforms then let you join a que to use the book.

Some example messages are below.
