We encourage you to paste links to Ebook Central ebooks in your course management software (e.g., Moodle) instead of sections of actual content.

With links there is no concern about authorized access - links only work if your Ebook Central site still has access to the book. To create a link to a particular page of an Ebook Central ebook, see> Ebook Central: Get a link (URL) to a book, or to a particular page in a book. Pasting the content of an Ebook Central ebook in your course management software raises issues of infringement because access of the content cannot be tracked and the content might accidentally end up being available even once you no longer have access to it on your Ebook Central site. It is up to library admins to assess whether intended use of content is a "Fair Use" or an infringing use - the same as with print books, see ProQuest Terms and Conditions. Use your library policies and procedures that have been set up to guard against infringement to address questions.

Articles or other works contained in a Product may be included in your electronic reserves systems so long as such use employs durable links to the Products so that a “hit” is registered on ProQuest’s on-line platform each time a student views the work on reserve. Nothing in this agreement restricts your use of the materials contained within the Products under the doctrines of “fair use” or “fair dealing” as defined under the laws of the United States or England, respectively. So, pasting links to Ebook Central is always okay, pasting the actual content is riskier and you will have to make a judgement call whether it would be considered fair use or infringing use.
