Are there any viewing restrictions?

  • Myilibrary generally limit the number of concurrent users for their e-books, typically to one user or three concurrent users.
  • There is no way for you to identify this but if you try to access a title and the limit to the number of concurrent users has been met you will see the following message;

“This book is currently being viewed by another patron. It will become available when the patron has finished viewing the selected book.”

  • When you see this message you will need to try again later. To access the e-book when available, you must close the page and re-open the book. Refreshing the page will not open the title.
  • Many Myilibrary titles allow multiple concurrent usage.

Please note; if you are logged into a Myilibrary title and do not actively use the e-book for four minutes, you will be automatically logged out and the title made available for another user.
