The e-book license for Rhodes University Library differs to that from the Amazon 'rental' model.
We purchase our e-books from a variety of publishers, each with their own regulations for use by Rhodes University staff and students. Therefore, each e-book will have varying read online, download and print authorisations.
When you have selected and opened an e-book you wish to read, you will be notified whether the book is downloadable and how long the "loan" period will be.
Should you wish the library to order e-books pertinent to your research, please liaise with your Department's Library Liaison person who can then request the purchase via the Library Ordering system.
