Things to know about eBooks

  • Subscription-based eBooks usually cannot be downloaded to a personal tablet/reader, but you can still view them. 
  • Since eBooks have different publishers and interfaces, ease of use will vary, depending on each publisher.
  • Some eBooks have watermarks that appear on the pages when you print, depending on publisher security rules.
  • Some eBooks allow users to print only One chapter/section/page at a time, depending on the publisher platform.
