Download ebrary ebooks to your phone, e-book reader, or tablet

ebrary (one of our favorite ebook partners) now provides downloading of books. You may download an ebrary book whenever the DOWNLOAD button appears in the toolbar. Most ebrary books may be downloaded for 14 days (the loan length is indicated when the Download button is clicked). After the loan period has expired, you will be prompted to download the book again.

Downloading an ebrary book lets you access the book offline. You first need to download the book to your computer and then transfer it to a device that has Adobe Digital Editions installed. You can view Adobe Digital Editions list of compatible devices here.

Downloaded ebrary books in Adobe Digital Editions format cannot be read yet by Kindles, but you can download chapters or sections of up to 60 pages as PDFs, which can be read by Kindles. For more information, read about downloading at ebrary Support.

As always, if you have a question or need help, please contact a Research Librarian. There is also a helpful tutorial on how to use ebrary here.
