Some ebook versions of textbooks are available for rent and/or purchase via Amazon, directly from the publisher, or on platforms like VitalSource or RedShelf. This prompts some obvious questions:
Platforms like Amazon and VitalSource require individual accounts to identify buyers and users, so that only that account can access that purchased title. We can't provide a link to the whole university that would only work for one person.
Yes, Amazon allows Prime members to create a household/family library and the ability to share purchased content within that group. However, that group is limited to 2 adults and 4 children, and not all titles are not enabled for lending. In fact, most academic textbooks and bestsellers are *not* available for lending.
You can check and see if a title can be lent in your household group by looking at a title's Product Details section on their Amazon page:
Ebook availability and access is determined by the book's publisher. They get to choose where it's sold and how it can be accessed. Within those parameters and those of our budget, the Library makes available as many titles as it can to as many people as it can.
Students should also check the ebook collections of their local public libraries. While most public libraries don't hold academic textbooks, they might have other titles on your class reading lists available for ebook checkout.
