Digital Rights Management (DRM) controls the access parameters a user has with an eBook, for example:
If you are using an eBook for a course with a large number of students, it is a good idea to contact your Liaison Librarian to ensure access is suitable and discuss alternatives if there are problematic restrictions.
Providing students with direct access to eBooks from Blackboard is simple. Rather than copy and paste the URL from the address bar in your browser, look for a Permalink, a Stable URL, or an option to Share Link to Book, then copy and paste that into Blackboard. Students may be asked to provide their Notre Dame username and password when they follow the link. (Don't use the permanent link available from the Summon results list as the length of the URL may be problematic.)
