Limits on number of: copies, prints, pages image-PDF downloadable

There are variable limits on the number of the following that can be made per book in a single user session:

  • copies that can be made
  • pages that can be printed
  • pages that can be image-PDF downloaded

The restrictions are as follows for ebrary sites both within and outside the United States:

  • 60 = Max number of copies (InfoTools, Copy) per book, per user session
  • 60 = Max pages printed (InfoTools, Print) per book, per user session
  • 60 = Max pages downloaded as image PDF per book, per user session

There are a few publishers who have set more restrictive limits on books they provide.  These publishers 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 (except Informa) – print and download limit of 30 pages
  • Wiley
  • University of North Carolina Press

- Note, in most of these cases the print or page-range dialog box will indicate the limits.  However, for publishers that set different limits for purchased and subscribed titles, the dialog box will not indicate the restricted limit.
- If you are not on a reseller site and you experience a limit lower than the above, it is for this reason.

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)
