Printing/Downloading Restrictions

There is no DRM (digital rights management) on Project Muse ebooks; however, ebooks can only be downloaded and printed chapter-by-chapter.

Search Screen

Currently the Project Muse ebook collection has almost 5000 titles with more being added all the time. You cannot limit from the home screen; all you can do is search and browse. Limiters are available from the advanced search page or from the first search results screen.

Advanced Search

The Advanced search screen allows you to combine search terms and to apply limits of all different types, including the one for books. The most useful limiter is "Only content I have access to" as it prevents frustration by retrieving content you can't read.
