To check out eBooks from EBSCO or EBL, you will need:
See EBSCO's instructions for how to check out and download a book.
1. Can I read EBSCO or EBL eBooks on campus computers?
Yes, but you can't download them for offline reading unless the computer has Adobe Digital Editions installed. You can install Adobe Digital Editions on your own computer (it's free!) and read books there.
2. How long can I check out an EBSCO book?
You can choose anywhere from 1 to 7 days. After the checkout period, your download will expire and you will need to check the book out again if you want to keep using it.
3. Can I read a book on my phone?
If it's an iPhone or an Android, then yes. You'll need a reader app; we suggest Bluefire, which is free.
4. When I tried to open a book, I got a message that it's in use. What's going on?
EBSCO eBooks can only be viewed by one person at a time. If the book is in use you'll need to try to access it again later.
