  • 4. Argosy Digital Bookshelf and eBook Users Manual ‐ Students    Version 4.1  Updating your License/Book List    You can always access your eBook via the online classroom.  In addition, you will also have the opportunity  to download the eBook to your personal computer using the Digital Bookshelf software.      During the first 16 days of class, you can download a temporary license for your eBook.  This expires on the  16th  day  of  the  term.    After  this  time  period,  the  full  license  for  the  eBook  is  available.    Both  license  types  allow you to access the entire textbook.  Updating your license/book list will allow you to access your eBook  after this initial temporary license has expired and for up to 5 years.      For  instance,  if  you  download  your  eBook  to  your  personal  computer  during  the  first  16  days of class, you will receive an  expiration  warning,  shown  to  the right.        In this case, and in the event that you see this same expiration message, you will need to access your eBook  through the online classroom again in order to obtain the full license for the eBook.  You must do this after  the temporary license has expired. Then, follow the steps below to update your license/book list.    Note: If you have multiple eBooks in a term, we suggest that you click on the links for each separate book title via the  online classroom before proceeding with the steps below. This will ensure you update all books on your book list at the  same time, versus having to complete this process multiple times.    Option 1      1. Go to your online classroom and click on the eBook link again.  This assigns the full eBook license to your  account.  This step must be completed before a book list update will be effective.        If you are using Bookshelf Versions 5.2:  If you are using Bookshelf Version 5.3:      2.
