It handles the digital rights management for the e-book; monitors the download-time-period and causes the e-book to become unreadable after the indicated time period. In addition to downloading Adobe Digital Editions, you must create an Adobe ID if you do not already have one.

Second, in ebrary or EbscoHost, you must register for a free account, and then sign in before you can download an e-book.
