Patrons are notified when their 5 minute browse expires; Patrons are notified when a book is available
ProQuest allows patrons to use an e-book with limited licenses to have 5 minutes of access even if no license is available. I would suggest that such users get a notification that they have "limited" access to the book and a count-down click to show them the remaining access. If a license becomes available during those 5 minutes, a pop-up window can appear to inform them that they now have full access. If the five minutes are up, the patron should have the option to enter an e-mail or cell phone number to receive notification when a license becomes available. Thanks for considering.
I am happy to announce that the Wait List feature is now available for libraries to enable in LibCentral. Once the feature is enabled, patrons are able to sign up for alerts to be notified when books become available.
You can find more information about how to enable and use the feature in this Support Article: Ebook Central Admin: How do I enable the Wait List for my Ebook Central titles?
Thank you all for your valuable feedback and insights that helped us make this feature intuitive and user-friendly.
