To make effective use of eBooks you need to have an Adobe ID that will allow you to dowload books to either Adobe Digital Editions- to read on your computer or laptop, or Bluefire Reader- to read on your mobile device or iPad.
Why Use Adobe Digital Editions?
Adobe Digital Editions is free software that allows you to download, view, and manage eBooks on your computer or laptop. The first time you use Adobe Digital Editions to open an eBook you will be asked to authorize your computer with your Adobe ID.
For a full list of devices that support Adobe Digital Editions visit Digital Editions Supported Devices.
If you are printing an eBook from Ebrary or EBSCOhost, up to 60 pages of a title can be printed per user in PDF format. In addition, you can select to save the pages as a PDF file instead of printing them.
The number of pages may vary depending on individual publisher-specified limits.
