Q. Why does a book from the Dawsonera service give me a preview only option even though I've been able to read it previously?


  • Some books have only a limited e.g. one or three simultaneous user license. Dawsonera service will show preview only option when all the licensed copies of the book are in use.
  • You can reserve such a book using "add to queue" option in the book's information. When the book becomes available for reading you'll be notified by e-mail.
  • Note that you need to log in with the Shibboleth login option, if you want to reserve the book while reading it in the university's network area.
