Admins, Ordering: Some ebrary books available for purchase with a 3USER (three-user) license
ebrary now offers a 3USER perpetual license for some ebrary books that previously were only available for purchase as single-user (SUPO).If you purchase a book as 3USER, it is equivalent to purchasing 3 single-user copies, but at a significant cost savings. Up to three users will be able to access the book at the same time.Important notes:
- The 3USER purchase option is NOT available on the partners site, ONLY via the Admin tab on your ebrary site
- To be able to access the admin tools via the Admin tab, see admin-tools
- Implications for full-document downloading:
- The default setting is that single-user titles cannot be downloaded unless there is more than one single-user copy of the same title or, equivalently, if the title was purchased as 3USER.
- The default setting is also that the last single-user copy cannot be full-document downloaded.
- So if your site keeps the default settings, two users can have a 3USER book full-document downloaded at the same time, but if two copies are already full-document downloaded, no additional copies can be full-document downloaded until one of the downloads expires or is returned.
- The default setting for full-document download can be modified under the Admin tab, DOWNLOAD tab:
