The vast majority of ebooks allow for unlimited simultaneous users (meaning an entire class can be reading the same ebook at once).
Most library ebooks allow a set number of pages to be downloaded in PDF format to keep (decided by publisher and vendor). Depending on the platform, the page numbers are reset every hour (EBSCO Ebooks) or every 24 hours (ProQuest Ebooks) and can then be downloaded again until the entire book has been downloaded to keep. When downloaded in this way, the ebooks do not expire and are yours to keep.
Most library ebooks are DRM (digital rights management) protected ebooks.
We spend a lot of time arguing about how schools might be improved. But we rarely take a step back to ask what we as a society should be looking for from education--what exactly should those who make decisions be trying to achieve? In Educational Goods, two philosophers and two social scientists address this very question.
Excellence Through Equity is an inspiring look at how real-world educators are creating schools where all students are able to thrive. In these schools, educators understand that equity is not about treating all children the same. They are deeply committed to ensuring that each student receives what he or she individually needs to develop their full potential and succeed.

This accessible, hands-on text has now been revised and updated, with expanded coverage of topics including how theory may emerge from exploratory data analysis. The book prepares graduate students, new researchers, and even seasoned investigators to develop their own theories and build on existing ones. Concrete strategies are provided to help readers generate ideas, define constructs, and think through relationships and processes that link constructs. Compelling examples from multiple disciplines illustrate the use of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods orientations to theory construction. The text also offers practical advice for writing effectively about theories in papers and grant applications.
This accessible text provides a roadmap for producing a high-quality literature review--an integral part of a successful thesis, dissertation, term paper, or grant proposal. Each step of searching for, evaluating, analyzing, and synthesizing prior studies is clearly explained and accompanied by user-friendly suggestions, organizational tips, vignettes, and examples of student work.
