Download restrictions for consortia sites

Full-download is not allowed on limited-user books provided by a consortia.

  • If a limited-user book is on a parent-of-consortia site, then the book cannot be full-document downloaded on any of its child-of-consortia sites.
  • The only limited-user books that are not restricted against full-document downloading on a child-of-consortia site are books that are on the child-of-consortia site and are NOT on the parent-of-consortia site.
  • That is, even if a child site purchases their own copies of a book, if the parent provides the book as a limited-user book, then it is not downloadable on the child site.

Full-download of unlimited multi-user books have no special restrictions for consortia sites.

Print to PDF (aka chapter download) has no special restrictions for consortia sites.
