Copy and print limits are now based on percentage of the book’s total number of pages

The copy and print limits on most ebrary books are now based on the following percentage of the number of pages in the book.  These limits are per book, per user session.

  • Selections that can be copied = 15%
  • Pages that can be printed = 30%

Note, print refers to printing to either paper or PDF (aka page-range downloads).

There are a few publishers who have set more restrictive limits on books they provide.  Example publishers with more restrictive limits include:

  • CQ Press
  • Duke
  • Elsevier
  • Houghton Mifflin Harcourt – does not allow any copies, prints, or page-range downloads (but it does allow full-document downloads)
  • Taylor & Francis – limits to printing 30 pages
  • Wiley
  • University of North Carolina Press

There are a few resellers who have different limits on ebrary SITES they provide. These include:

  • Al Manhal
  • Irwin Law
  • Cengage
  • Business Expert Press (BEP)
