We are pleased to let you know about the participation of the SMCM Library in an ebook demand-driven acquisitions pilot project through USMAI. Over 8500 ebooks are now accessible through a search of the SMCM or USMAI catalog. These 2012-2014 publications are available for immediate viewing or download. A book may be borrowed for 7 days and multiple users from all campuses may access the same title simultaneously.
Once a book has been borrowed a total of 6 times the title will automatically be purchased through USMAI to be shared among all campuses, and available to simultaneous users. Once a book is downloaded the reader can print or copy limited portions.
Additional details about this pilot, including instructions for downloading the Adobe Digital Editions software or Bluefire app are available on our Research Guide for the Demand-Driven Acquisitions pilot.
