Print or Copy ebooks

Can I print or copy ebooks?
Yes. But as these are reference titles, printing is generally limited to one entry. For example, you can print off the entry for "What Is Bullying?" but you cannot print out the entire reference book.

As with other ebooks, printing and copying is governed by copyright and is generally limited to 60 pages per reading session.
