There are some eBook titles that the library, as with our print books, has a limited number of copies. When that happens and another user is reading an eBook, you will get a message that the copies are in use. With ProQuest Ebook Central, that message will look like this:
This means that the eBook is currently in use, or "checked out," by another reader, and you will need to check back at another time.
For titles on the EBSCO eBooks platform, that message will look like this:
If you want to be notified when the eBook becomes available, or is "returned" by another user, you may do so using a My EBSCOhost account. This is separate from your myLesley login, and is also optional. If you don't want to create a My EBSCOhost account, you can simply check back at a later time.
