Reading and Downloading Ebooks

Read Online

To read EBSCO ebooks online, first search for the book. Click the PDF Full Text link under the title in the search results or in the left sidebar of the individual item record. Alternatively, scroll down to the Table of Contents and click on the desired chapter.

Download Book

To download the full book to your device, click the Full Download link in the left sidebar of the book detail page. If you do not have Adobe Digital Editions installed, you will be prompted to do so. Log in with your EBSCO account to complete the download.  You can find more information about EBSCO ebook digital checkouts here.

Full book downloads expire after 7-21 days. In most cases you can re-download the book as many times as you like. For rare books with a limit on simultaneous users, you may have to wait your turn to re-download the book. Please be aware that Adobe software does NOT preserve your annotations from one checkout to the next.

Download Chapter

To download individual chapters as DRM-free PDF files, access the book online in PDF Full Text view. From the Table of Contents in the left sidebar, select the download chapter icon next to the chapter of your choice. Alternatively, you can use the Save Pages link in the navigation ribbon at the top of the page to access the PDF download dialog. You will be prompted with a download PDF of the current chapter.

Most books have a limit on the number of pages that can be downloaded as PDF. This limit resets daily.
