Viewing, Printing, and Downloading

How do I view an EBSCO ebook?

EBSCO’s online eBook viewer supports reading on computers and mobile devices. The reader is browser-based, so there’s no need to download special software or hardware.

Can I print or save EBSCO eBook pages as a PDF?

Depending on publisher-specified limits, up to 100 pages of an EBSCO eBook can be printed, saved or emailed as a PDF file per user, per day from within the eBook viewer.

  • Some titles may not allow for printing due to individual publisher-specified limits.
  • The number of pages may vary depending on individual publisher-specified limits.
  • If you have reached your printing limit, the option to print or save eBook pages will be temporarily unavailable.


Can I download an EBSCO ebook?

Yes ebooks can be downloaded to your computer or mobile device and read with the free Adobe Digital Editions app.

Note this option requires you to have Adobe Digital Editions installed and have an Adobe account - get complete download instructions here.

Recommendation: "I often tell students to bypass the download option, instead view the ebook in the browser and use the print or save option if you need to output a chapter or certain pages."
