Deletion Lists for eBooks and Film Streaming

 

The Library’s collections of ebooks and of videos through Films on Demand undergo big changes a couple of times a year. They add hundreds of new titles when they do this, but unfortunately they also remove a large number. If there are titles you assign to your classes or use in teaching and they suddenly disappear, obviously that’s not good. We will post lists of deletions to our ebook and online film collections in this location as we receive them.  A more complete list can be found here.

Number of Users for eBook Platforms

 

The MGA Library has eBooks from a number of different vendors, and they have different user models--in other words, for some of our eBooks, only a limited number of students can access the books simultaneously. For others, unlimited users can access them at the same time. The following gives basic guidelines on how many simultaneous users can access each brand of eBook.

If you find an eBook in the Library's GIL catalog that you would like to assign to your class and have questions, please give your Library Liaison a call for more information.
