EBL - Ebook Library: Print, Copy & URLs

Finding, accessing, and using ebooks in the EBL Ebook library

Print

Click the Print button at the top of the EBL Online Reader. Three options are available for printing:

  • Single Page - Print the page you were just viewing
  • Print Range - Manually enter one or more page ranges to print
  • Full Chapters - Select multiple chapters from the list to print

Each individual user may print up to 20% of any ebook’s total content. When selecting Full Chapters, keep in mind that the printing quota may restrict your ability to print an entire chapter. The Summary section of the Print page and the Details tab shows your used and remaining print allowance.

Adobe Reader is required to print ebook content. If you experience an issue with printing, please check to make sure:

  • An up-to-date version of Adobe Reader is installed
  • Adobe Reader JavaScript Preferences (Edit > Preferences) have Acrobat Javascript enabled
  • Adobe Reader Internet Preferences (Edit > Preferences) are set to "Open PDF in Browser"
  • Your web browser has JavaScript enabled

Note: The EBL system is set up to allow users to reprint pages that they have already tried to print. So, even though pages may have been subtracted from your print quota, as long as you select any of the same pages to reprint, you should be able to print them again even if the print quota has been reached.

Copy

Select the Copy button at the top of the EBL Online Reader. Click and drag to select the text you wish to copy, then copy via Right-Click > Copy, or by pressing Ctrl+C.
