Downloading, copying and printing from ebooks

Library ebooks are provided by different publishers. Like print books, ebooks are protected by copyright law; for many ebooks this is controlled automatically by Digital Rights Management (DRM) software.

The amount you can download, print or copy from an ebook varies from one publisher and title to another.  This information is usually displayed when you use each ebook.
