If you find that several students want to read a library book at the same time, you may need to review how many library licences your institution owns for that title, and consider buying additional licences.

To check how many licences have been purchased for a specific title:

  1. Navigate to the ‘Owned’ section of the library when logged in to Engage.  
  2. Find the relevant title by scrolling through the list of titles on this page, or using the search bar at the top of your screen. To refine your search, click ‘Advanced’ to the right of the search bar; once you’ve typed in your search details, click ‘Search’ or hit ‘Enter’ on your keyboard.
  3. Once you’ve found the ebook you’re looking for, click on its image to open the title page.
  4. On the title-specific page, you will see the licence details on the right-hand side of the screen.

💳 To purchase additional licences, click the ‘Add’ button. In the pop-up window, select the number of licences you wish to add and click ‘Buy’. The amount will be deducted from your institution’s available account balance.
