Everything you need to know about finding and using e-Books in our Library.

Why aren't all eBooks the same?

The Library will purchase eBooks from a number of different publishers and vendors, and often they have different policies on how we can offer access to eBooks.

Digital Rights Management (DRM) control how digital content is used. It is set by each vendor or publisher and controls:

  • how many people can view an eBook at the same time
  • if an eBook can be downloaded
  • how much can be downloaded or printed from an eBook
  • if there is a time limit for viewing an eBook
  • what device or programs support the eBook format or file type
  • if you need an additional sign-in account (separate from your University login) to access features within the eBook.
