An ebook is visible in SUPrimo, but I can't read or download it ?

I can't access an ebook and I have been placed in a queue, why?
Some ebooks have access restrictions placed by publishers, so the amount of people that can access at anyone time is reduced to maybe 1, 2 or 3 users within a 24 hour period. This is called Managed User Access (MUA).
Only one person at a time can view an ebook published by Pearson.
