    • If you have further questions about creating stable off-campus links to UW-restricted materials or how to search for our electronic journals, please Ask Us or contact your subject librarian.
  • Ebooks in the UW Libraries collection typically cannot be placed on course websites because they often have licensing restrictions that prevent multiple users from accessing the book at the same time or limit the overall number of times the item can be accessed. If you have questions about using an ebook for a class, please Ask Us or contact your subject librarian.
