Question: Can I download books from ebrary?
Yes, you can download books from ebrary. You'll first need to create an individual account within ebrary. Then, once you select a particular title, select the download option button.
In most cases you can download an image-only PDF file, which cannot exceed a 60-page print maximum. Since it's image-only, the file cannot be searched. The PDF is accessible on most computers and devices, including the Kindle, without additional software.
If you want to download the entire book, you must first install Adobe Digital Editions (available for free download online) and log in with your Adobe account (you'll need to create one if you don't already have one). You can then view the downloaded book in Adobe Digital Editions; the item will be checked out to you for a 14-day period. The item will be accessible on most computers and devices except the Kindle.
For off-campus access, the Download feature is available only through EZproxy.
