Some of the UTAS library's eBooks are protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) systems.
What is Digital Rights Management?
DRM systems control the use of digital content, such as downloadable songs, DVDs and CDs, games, and of course, e-books.
It is how content creators-and libraries- keep track of how long an item has been checked out for electronically.
