Q: What's the difference between an ebook and a digital subscription?
A: An ebook is downloadable to your device for you to access for the life of your device or the product format (usually five years), but it is a single license for a single reader. A Digital Subscription provides access to ebooks by an unlimited number of readers for a specific amount of time (1 or 5 years).
Q: How do students access the ebooks as part of the subscription?
A: Students can read online (PC/MAC) using the web-based reader or download ebooks to their own devices using the Orca Digital app.
Q: How many books do I get in a digital subscription?
A: Starting with a minimum of 12 ebooks, you can get as many of Orca’s ebooks as you want. We have ebooks for all of our print books, which means you have over 800 titles to choose from!
