Yes, but only for eBooks from publishers that allow multiple concurrent users.  

The issue is somewhat complex given the current information landscape and restrictive publisher Copyright and Digital Rights Management models.

In short, Fuller Library provides eBooks from a variety of publishers and we currently have to maintain multiple Digital Rights Management licenses.  In addition, some eBooks were purchased by the library (usually one to two concurent users) while some are provided by large multi-disciplinary subscription packages (unlimited concurent users).

For example, most titles from the following packages: eBook Academic Collection (from EBSCO) and EBL ebooks  @ Fuller Library  can be accessed by unlimited concurrent users.

On the other hand, collections such as  JSTOR eBooks @ Fuller Library only allow for one to two concurrent users.

Hope this helps and please feel free to follow-up with additional questions.
