Changes to MyiLibrary ebooks

Access to ebooks on the MyiLibrary platform is now limited to three Cambridge users at one time. This is due to pressure from publishers.

If more than three users attempt to access the same title simultaneously, the fourth user will see the following message displayed: “This book is currently being viewed by another patron. It will become available when the patron has finished viewing the selected book”.

The ebooks@cambridge team are working with MyiLibrary to find a solution that does not disrupt access to popular titles. For further details please take a look at the ebooks@cambridge blog.

If you are experiencing problems accessing particular titles, please come and see us, or drop us an email at
