You don't need a ScienceDirect agreement to buy Books on ScienceDirect...
Books on ScienceDirect may be purchased regardless of whether or not you already have an institutional ScienceDirect agreement. Existing ScienceDirect customers will receive a simple amendment to existing contract agreements. Customers who only sign up for eBooks need to pay an annual access fee as specified in the contract.
Online-only access to books is purchased separately from the print version. The fee is charged according to the number of full-time equivalents (FTEs) within your institution.
FTEs are defined as full-time and part-time students, faculty, and distance learners within an institution. Please note that colleges that do not offer graduate programs may apply for special pricing arrangements.
