Downloading, copying and printing

Like physical books, library eBooks are protected by copyright law, and for many ebooks this is controlled automatically by Digital Rights Management (DRM) software.
The amount you can download, copy or print varies from one publisher and title to another. This information is usually displayed when you use each eBook.
