Most vendors offer a full site license. However, some vendors offer only a concurrent user license (e.g. 1 - 5 simultaneous users.) Concurrent user limits are most common for eBooks, but can sometimes apply to eJournals and databases.

TTUHSC faculty should take concurrent user licenses into consideration when using library resources as required materials, especially for large class assignments.

Also, due to the constantly changing terms of vendor licensing, there is no comprehensive list of all resources that have a concurrent user limit. Faculty should check each individual resource themselves, or ask a librarian, before distributing a link to students.
