Why do some EBSCO eBooks not require me to log into My EBSCOhost folder?

Some EBSCO eBooks that may be offered by your institution are available without DRM (Digital Rights Management) restrictions. These eBooks do not require you to sign into My EBSCOhost to download them. In addition, no Adobe® ID or special software such as Adobe Digital Editions or Bluefire reader is necessary to download and read them.

When an eBook is available without DRM, you can simply select your preferred eBook format (PDF or EPUB) and click the Download button.

DRM-Free EBSCO eBooks can be opened with Adobe® Acrobat or any software that supports PDF or EPUB files and there are no restrictions on printing, saving, or copying.
