E-book Information and Searches


EBSCO usually provides two options for viewing their E-Books:

1.     PDF full text will allow you to view it in Adobe Reader.

2.   Download This eBook (Offline) will allow you to download the full ebook to your device and access it for 7 days.

E-Book restrictions:

E-Books that allow for printing and downloading sometimes come with restrictions which vary from publisher to publisher regarding the amount of pages that can be printed or saved. We ask that you be aware of these restrictions because excessive printing and/or downloading can cause the publisher to turn off E-Bbook access for everyone. 

Here are the guidelines for some E-Book websites:

  • AccessMedicine – May download individual sections within a chapter.
  • ClinicalKey – You must sign up for a free account in order to download individual chapters.
  • ProQuest – print policy & download instructions
  • EBSCOhost – print policydownload instructions
  • R2 Digital Library – While you are not allowed to download eBooks from R2, you can print or email sections using the “Tools” icon across the top navigation bar. If more then 60 print or email requests or 20% of the books pages are downloaded/printed over a 24 hour period, then the printing and emailing functions will be turned off.
  • O'Reilly Books – You can only download and print individual pages.
