What peers are saying about MyCopy?

“This project represents a very innovative way in which to look at both publisher and library services for electronic content in the future, and MyCopy is a great value-add to our site license for these eBooks,” said Wendy Allen Shelburne, Electronic Resources Librarian at the Library of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

“Yes, the book did match my expectations. I certainly will buy again - the most attractive thing is the considerable savings in the price - this is simply unbelievable and not matched by any other offer from any bookseller!
