Printing and Downloading in EBSCO

Printing:

The print limit for most EBSCO ebooks is 60 pages though some publishers may limit this further.  To print, first navigate to the chapter you are interested in and then click on the Printer icon on the right side of the page. A dialog box similar to the one displayed below will pop up allowing you to print from a PDF.

Downloading:

Creating an image PDF of a specific chapter or page range

For most books you can download a segment of a book (60 pages or fewer, though in some cases more) as a PDF to keep; alternatively, you can choose to download a single chapter. If the chapter's length exceeds 60 pages, you'll get an error message—in that case, select a 60-page range from the chapter in the Download dialog.
