Q. May I request ebooks?
Our Virginia consortium (VIVA) offers some (as in very little) ebook lending. It is specific to the following publishers: Brill, Wiley, Oxford University Press, and Taylor & Francis. Loans come in the form of a PDF. This is a new program and there are still some quirks.
If your requested ebook is not available from these four publishers, the ILL librarian will automatically find you a printed version (unless you specify "ebook only" on your order under the course section).
Please recognize that ebook are licensed whereas printed books are owned. Owned items can be lent/borrowed; whereas licensed items cannot ... unless the lending library has a licensing agreement with the publisher (as noted above with VIVA and the four publishers).
