FAQ Search Results

Occasionally I can't access an electronic journal. I get a message that all of the subscriptions are in use. Why?

Just as the library buys copies of print subscriptions, we also buy licenses for electronic subscriptions.

Many licenses limit the number of simultaneous uses of individual titles; that is, the number of people allowed to look at one article or journal title at the same time. Unlimited licenses may be available in some cases, but may be too costly for our budget.

Note that articles which are heavily in demand for course reserves may be available within your Pulse course pages as reserve readings.
