Copy and print limits

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

  • Pages from which you can copy = 15%
    • Copying multiple selections from one page only counts as one copy
  • Pages you can print = 30%
    • Print to paper and/or print to PDF (aka page-range download)
