Sections of a book can be saved as PDF.
Printing allowance varies by title, but usually around 60 pages are allowed.
Text can be copied and pasted one page at a time while in the Ebook Central Reader. Only a limited number of pages can be copied.
Notes can be made if logged in with personal account.

Notes for Sacramento State users:
Majority of titles are "Unlimited User Titles" and can be read and even downloaded by multiple users simultaneously.
However, some Ebook Central e-books labeled "Limited User Title" can be simultaneously read by multiple users unless the ebook has been downloaded. Upon downloading, only the individual who downloaded the ebook will have access for the duration of the checkout period.
Once the checkout period has elapsed for a downloaded book, that file for the ebook expires and any notes or annotations made will be lost. If you wish to continue reading/using the book a new copy of the ebook can be downloaded (if available), but the notes taken on the previous download will not be included in the new download.
