Q. The Library catalog inidcates that we have electronic access to a book but when I follow the link I get the message that the Library does not have access to it

Patron has found an electronic title (ebook) in the online catalog, but when following the link, the publisher has discontinued access to the materials by AUM

Answer

The book is a part of our Demand Driven Acquisition program. Publishers in that program frequently list their materials only for a limited period of time, then pull the materials from the collection. While the Library updates its holdings every month, the updates from the publisher often lag 3 - 6 months or more behind, esp. in terms of materials being removed from the collection.  The best way to get this material is to submit a request through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) for a printed, physical copy.  ILL can be accessed at https://illiad.aum.edu .
