This lib guide has information for instructors on how to set up your distance classes

Faculty Select

"Faculty Select" is a tool produced by EBSCO to help instructors find materials to incorporate materials that are either free or already held by EMCC libraries for your classes. 

Most eBooks have limits on the number of people who can use it at one time, how many pages can be downloaded, etc., making them unsuitable for use as a class textbook. Publishers call this "Digital Rights Management" or DRM.  If we do not have an unrestricted license for a book you would like to adopt as a text, the library will happily try to acquire it for you. 

To use "Faculty Select" Copy and paste the link below into your browser search bar.$
