Single-User versus Multi-User eBooks and Options

When you purchase an eBook or redeem an access code for an eBook, you gain the right to read the purchased content online, as well as offline, using our provided compatible reader.

By default, as with most software sold today, Industrial Press eBook subscriptions are single-user versions, unless specified otherwise. This means that you can download our provided proprietary reader and your encrypted eBooks for your own non-simultaneous access on several devices. However, you cannot share or distribute content in any form without prior written permission from Industrial Press.

Discounts on Multi-user eBook subscriptions: Multi-user packages are available, with discounts varying based on the products and number of eBooks purchased, to qualifying retail customers (not to resellers). The multi-user pricing outlined at left applies to qualifying purchases of the primary products (such as the MH31 Digital Edition ISBN: 9780831138318 as sold here and on the Industrial Press eBookStore). These standard discounts do not apply to upgrade or combination packages, or when using any other discounts or special offers, and cannot be applied directly online. However, if your group has more than one previous edition MH digital products, we suggest you contact us for applicable group pricing.

For more than 100 users: Contact Industrial Press at info@industrialpress.com and ask to speak to a sales representative.

Educational, government, or military institutions: Note that different pricing may apply, with a 30% discount potentially applying to smaller groups. For such institutions, again, contact Industrial Press at info@industrialpress.com and ask to speak to a sales representative.

Access codes versus site license with logins: Multi-user eBook subscriptions can be set up in various ways to suit your needs:

  1. Multiple redeemable access codes (one for each user)
  2. One login and password for multiple users
  3. Multiple logins and passwords
  4. Setup for some number of users per your computer system IP address (extra setup fees may apply).

Term of subscriptions: Purchase of redeemable access codes for individual subscribers (for example, for students in a single class or term to keep afterwards) usually (but not always) do not expire. For some products (such as the Machinery’s Handbook), access codes or site licenses for multiple users may require renewal/upgrade upon publication of the next edition. Please discuss applicable terms/time frame with your IP representative.
