Trouble Accessing Book[edit | edit source]
While at a Family History Library, a local FamilySearch Center, or a partner library, you may receive the message, "You don't have sufficient rights to view the requested object." This means the book is under copyright protection and is currently checked out by another viewer. If this occurs, please try back in 60 minutes to see if the book is available for viewing. The book will be made available for viewing after the other reader has finished with the book. When viewers forget to close the book when they are done, the system automatically closes the book after 24 hours.
