Multi-user Access to ASPEN eBooks: Can I Use Them in the Classroom?

ASPEN eBooks via EBSCO can be used in the classroom or as a part of your course syllabus.
Stocking ASPEN titles in your library saves student textbook funds and gives you more flexibility to assign chapters and sections of work from several ASPEN titles.

  • ASPEN titles downloaded to mobile devices will be available to students as long as the library’s checkout period allows (and then will expire).
  • If more than one student will need to access or checkout the ASPEN title at the same time, check to make sure the license is for unlimited access. If the license for the title is a single or 3-user license, contact your subject librarian for expanded rights. Licenses can be changed within 30 minutes of notifying EBSCO.
  • As a faculty member, you may also save PDF chapters and post them directly in your course syllabus, or you could link to the title or chapter directly. If you’re linking to the title, make sure it has unlimited access and make sure your students know they’ll need to authenticate to view their library resources.
