The Clarkson University Libraries purchase eBooks from varying platforms. Some require an account set-up and plugin installation. Some only allow one user per title at a time or prevent downloading entirely. Borrowing eBooks from other libraries is usually not allowed by publishers. To access eBooks that are not owned by the Clarkson University Libraries you will have to request a print copy.
