General FAQs:

What does a LexisNexis Digital Library customer actually get?
LexisNexis Digital Library customers will get a branded primary website and a mobile optimized site to browse and read material. Administrators have access to the OverDrive Content Reserve and have the ability to view title usage statistics and run reports.

Does LexisNexis Digital Library only work with LexisNexis eBooks?
We want our customers to have a digital library experience that mirrors their physical library experience. The LexisNexis Digital Library platform offers an open approach and can be used by other publishers who make their content available via OverDrive in a standard format. The OverDrive Content Reserve hosts content from more than 5,000 publishers available for purchase.

Can LexisNexis Digital Library sync with my organization’s existing catalog?
Yes. OverDrive works with a number of catalog vendors for authentication and can provide MARC record for title discovery. For more details, contact your LexisNexis Account Representative.

How long can patrons check out eBooks?
Concurrent user licensing allows each researcher to carry your complete eBook collection with them at all times. 
One copy/one user options are also available: Checkout time periods are established by your library administrator. Typical default periods are 7, 14 or 28 days for service titles and 30, 60 or 90 days for desk books, however these time periods are at the library’s discretion.

How are eBooks updated?
Publications hosted on your organization’s LexisNexis Digital Library platform will update automatically when a new release becomes available. After the update occurs, patrons who check out the title will be accessing the latest release.

Can I access prior versions/releases of eBooks?
When a customer goes live with LexisNexis Digital Library, the customer will begin building a library archive. Going forward from the go-live date, prior releases/editions will be archived on the digital library; editions available prior to a customer’s go-live date will not be available.
