    eBook Myths

    Myth
    All eBooks can be downloaded

    Publishers may place restrictions on eBooks which prevent them from being downloaded.  Sometimes they allow the whole book to be downloaded and other times you are limited to a certain number of pages.   

    Myth
    You need an e-reader to view eBooks

    eBooks can be viewed on iPads, smartphones, computers, tablets, or other devices which have the appropriate software.

    Myth
    All eBooks can be printed

    Publishers can limit the number of pages printed from an eBook.

    Example: Most eBooks in Ebrary allow a maximum of 60 pages printed per day.  Some publishers though, have set a more restrictive printing limit for their books in Ebrary.
