As part of ProQuest’s ongoing commitment to improve usability and remove any obstacles to access, Patrons will now be able to easily search for DRM free e-book titles and chapters. These publications have no limit for copying, downloading or printing.

In order to locate the available e-books, please access your institution’s Ebook Central platform and click on “Advanced Search”.

The “Owned and subscribed by my library” filter is responsible for selecting publications owned by your institution. The “Unlimited Print, Copy & Download” filter is meant to only find the DRM free titles. You will need to then click on the “Search” button.

You will be transferred to the results page. It contains both the results for entire books and chapters.

The download process is different from the regular downloads and it will not require you to use reading applications, such as Adobe Digital Editions. You will be able to open the PDF document with whichever application you choose.

Each chapter can be expanded and you will see a preview of each page containing the keywords. In the Control Panel located in the upper section of the reader, you can click on print to PDF. You will observe that there are no page limitations for this option. The same principle applies to the “Print” and “Copy” buttons.
