eBook is an abbreviation for an electronic book that is available in full text online. Some eBooks are old books that are no longer subject to copyright and have been scanned and made available on the web. Many old books can be accessed via free databases such as Google Books. The State Library of South Australia has a subscription to several eBook Libraries.
Some eBooks are protected with a digital rights management system (DRM). DRM can limit copying, printing, and sharing of eBooks. EBooks are usually limited to a certain number of reading devices and some e-publishers prevent any copying or printing.
