About our eBooks
More and more schools and colleges are now enabling their students to access eBooks as part of their course. Usually this is done by the library or subject department purchasing a licence. The licence then permits a specified number of students to access the eBook during a given period, usually for the duration of their course, e.g. one or two years.
At Napier Press, we now publish all our textbooks in eBook as well as print form. The content of the eBook is identical to that of the print version. Schools and colleges can now purchase licences for the following Napier Press Sociology and Criminology eBooks:
- AQA A level Sociology Book One including AS level
- AQA A level Sociology Book Two
- Criminology Book One (New edition available 1st April)
- Criminology Book Two (New edition available 1st May)
About eBooks licences
You can purchase a licence for either one year (365 days) or two years (730 days) for any or all of the above eBooks. Your licence then enables a specified number of your students to access the eBook at any one time.
You can purchase a licence for 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 75 or 100 concurrent users (that is, those accessing the eBook at the same time).
For example, a licence for 10 concurrent users allows any 10 of your students to access the book at the same time. If you have, say, 15 students, they can all still access the eBook, but only 10 of them can access it at the same time.
Once your school/college has a licence for one of our eBooks, your students can access it remotely anytime, anywhere – from home, in school/college, or on the move. Just decide how many users you want to be able to access the eBook at any one time and then apply for your licence.
How to get your licence
Just send your work contact details including phone number to Brown’s Books for Students at firstname.lastname@example.org saying which eBooks you wish to have a licence for. Brown’s will create an account for you if your school/college doesn’t already have one (for example, if you took advantage of our free trial before 15th August 2020 you will already have an account). Please allow 48 hours for your account to be set up.
The price of a licence depends on which eBook you choose, the number of users you wish to give access to it, and the duration of the licence (one year or two). For example, a licence for five concurrent users of A level Sociology Book Two over two years costs the same as five print copies. Full details of prices are available from Brown’s at email@example.com.
