When I access an e-book from MyiLibrary I get the message "This book is currently being viewed by another patron..."?

MyiLibrary generally limit the number of concurrent users for their e-books, typically to one user or three concurrent users.

If you see the following message:

“This book is currently being viewed by another patron. It will become available when the patron has finished viewing the selected book.”


You will need to try again later.

To access the e-book when available, you must close the page and re-open the book. Refreshing the page will not open the title.
