Download chapter or pages as image PDF with QuickView

Create an image PDF of a specific chapter or page range for any ebrary document (up to the same number of pages you can print on your ebrary site).

You can then read the image PDF file offline on your computer using any standard PDF viewer, such as Adobe Reader, which you probably already have.  You can also transfer the file to a mobile device or e-reader, including the Kindle.

  • Image PDF files don’t expire.
  • We’ve recently improved the image quality of our image PDFs. The tradeoff was to add a watermark.  This is consistent with the approach used by other ebook providers when an unsecured PDF is provided.
  • You cannot search text or make annotations in an image PDF.
  • For more about the number of pages that can be image-PDF downloaded, see: http://support.ebrary.com/kb/limits
