There are two main instances where you may be asked to log in to use an eBook. One is necessary for you to gain access to an eBook, and one is optional and only needed to read an eBook using a third-party eBook reader.

It is not necessary if you want to save portions of the eBook as a PDF. If you are being prompted for this login and don't want to create an EBSCOhost account, select PDF Full Text instead:
