User limits for Individual eBooks:

Some books are purchase with unlimited user access and sometimes we also buy limited users access, Also, for full-downloads, there may be a time limit for which the file is accessible on your device.  When you access an ebook, usually the limitations are visible on the download screen.  Additional information is available for some providers:

Digital Rights Management (DRM):

DRM technology controls access to, tracks, and limits the use of digital works. The technology is part of the digital item itself and moves with it when it is distributed to the consumer. 

To download the full-text of many works, including some works from ProQuest EBook Central and EBSCO Ebook Collection, you will need to download Adobe Digital Editions and create a free Adobe ID.

For Android and iOS devicesBluefire Reader is a free, third-party app that makes it easy to download protected ebooks  First install the app and authorize it with your AdobeID. When you download an ebook that uses DRM, it will open automatically.
