Early Check-In

Users can check-in eBooks before the check-out duration expires by using Adobe Digital Editions or the BlueFire app. Returning the eBook early will release the title for other users, which is beneficial if your library has purchased the title under a one-user or three-user simultaneous access model. Learn how.

Did You Know?

Closing an eBook

EBSCO has made it even easier for users to close out of an open eBook session so that single- and three-user titles become immediately available for others to view, with several release options from the Online eBook Viewer and the Internet browser window.


Now, any time a user navigates away from the book—whether they start a new search on EBSCOhost, or exit/close the tabbed browsing window—the book is automatically closed and available to other users, with no lingering session time, and no confusing "closing" requirement.
