Content unavailable in my country

Do not show me or allow me to select titles and offerings that are not saleable to me.

    It is very frustrating to tell a faculty member that you can get the e-book because it is showing up in GOBI and then after you order it you find that the publisher does not allow access. It would be much better to allow us to filter our results to only those items that are saleable in our region.

    At the very least place the 'Library Availability' at the beginning of the column, so that users no whether to progress further with the order, or not.

    It's important to us to be able to see titles that may have a territory restriction. Best for the restriction to be clear and prominent.

    I'd prefer to see books that are available even not in my location. A proper notice like the non-return/non-refundable is sufficient in my opinion.

    I like this idea, but I think the concept should be flipped. Content shown should only be sellable. Perhaps there's an checkbox to show/reveal unsellable content - like how there is a checkbox to show titles already in collection.
