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

How to Print, E-mail or Save EBSCO eBooks Pages as a PDF

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


  • 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.

NOTE: For George Fox Library users, the page limits reset after one hour. That means once you close out of the ebook, you can return an hour later and download whatever the publisher limit was again. This can be repeated until the entire ebook has been downloaded in PDF format.
