Frequently Asked Questions

Isn’t this something the university library should handle? No. The Collection has been designed to permit individual students to obtain copies of e-texts for their individual use. The Collection offer has been structured to allow universities to aggregate their students’ buying power to reduce the cost of texts, while enabling students to retain control of the books they choose to own. Can students or faculty buy individual subscriptions? Not at the present time. Do books obtained from the collection ever expire? The titles that students and faculty download are not time-limited. They remain in the student’s or professor’s individual bookshelf even after the university license expires. How many titles may each student download? Licensees determine the number of titles each student in their community may download. Pricing is based on the total number of authorized credits (number of users x downloads per user). Pricing is discounted based on total dollar volume of the license. How many titles may a professor download? Faculty may download as many titles from the collection as they wish. Can my institution charge students for the cost of access? Access to the Collection is a benefit that institutions provide to their community. Licensees may recover the cost of the license from their students at their discretion. If students redeem all of their credits, may they purchase additional titles? Collection users who have redeemed all of their credits may purchase additional e-texts from Wiley at a discounted price. What if my student wants to purchase print copies instead of – or in addition to – e-texts? Users may click through to the Wiley website to purchase specially discounted print copies of titles in the Collection. What about FERPA? The Collection neither obtains nor stores any data relating to a student’s educational record. Students supply their own “directory” information sufficient to create a bookshelf account and an email address to permit their authentication as a member of a licensed community. How are users authenticated? Who will monitor and prevent unauthorized use? Wiley administrators will monitor account creation to determine that only authorized individuals are activating accounts under an institution’s license. Wiley may remove unauthorized user accounts, and may issue additional credits to an institution to offset unauthorized use.
