QuickView: To determine what kind of access you have to a particular book

To determine whether you have subscription or perpetual (“purchased”) access to a book:

  1. Go to your ebrary site
  2. Click the “Advanced” link at the top next to the Search field
  3. Select from the drop-down menu “Collection“, then select from the drop-down menu to the right either your site’s subscription collection (such as “Academic Complete”) or “Purchased Titles”
  4. Add another search line and search for the particular title

Important!  If a title is only available on your site in a subscription collection and you want to use it for a class or other purpose that requires the book won’t go away, it is recommended that your ebrary admins purchase the title as perpetual access.
