EBSCO e-books now available for download!

The former Netlibrary e-books - some 70,000+ titles - can now be downloaded to most e-reader devices or software (except for the Kindle, unfortunately).

The EBSCOhost e-books use Adobe Digital Editions digital rights management (DRM) software, which the PC/Mac versions are available here: .  From there, you can move the books from your desktop computer to a supported device.

The supported e-reader device list can be found here: .

I can personally recommend the Aldiko Reader for Android.

You will need to create an EBSCOhost account, which is free and can be used across the EBSCO platform for storing journal article citations, searches, and other personal items. You do not need an ID/Password from the library to use the download feature.

We are trialing this feature until early November, but I anticipate it will become a permanent feature due to positive response.

If you have any questions or comments, please e-mail me or use the chat reference.
