Single User vs. Multi User E-Books

You may occasionally receive a message like this:

"The document you wish to access is currently being viewed by another user."

Many of our e-books are single-user editions.  This means that if another library user is viewing the book you will have to wait until they close the book (or if they're inactive the book will time-out) in order to view the text. Some eBook providers allow multiple users to view a book at once.  For example Access Medicine and Clinical Key allow for unlimited simultaneous users.
