Online reference books can be found through one of the following reference databases below. Reference books or individual articles can be linked to directly from course Moodle pages.
All library e-books can be viewed directly within your browser. If you wish to download an ebook for offline viewing on your computer or tablet, you will need to download Adobe Digital Editions using the following instructions.
eBooks can be transferred to all e-readers that are compatible with Adobe Digital Editions, which includes most of the common e-readers (Nook, Sony e-reader, Kobo, etc) EXCEPT for the Amazon Kindle, which is NOT compatible with Adobe Digital Editions. A complete list of e-readers compatible with Adobe Digital Editions can be found here: http://blogs.adobe.com/
In order to download eBooks, you need to:
1) Download and install Adobe Digital Editions to your computer. This free software can be downloaded from http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions.
2) Create a free Adobe ID to use with Adobe Digital Editions. This allows you to read the Adobe DRM-protected eBooks on your device.
3) Search for the ebook using OneSearch or directly via EBSCO e-Books or EBL. Look for the download link, which will download the e-Book and load it into Adobe Digital Editions or a supported app.
For iPads, you can download eBooks directly from OneSearch in your browser but you still need to have a OneSearch account and an Adobe Digital Editions account. eBooks will work with the following free iPad/iPhone app, which can be found in the App Store: Bluefire Reader. Titles downloaded to your iPad will automatically expire after 7 days, or however many days you selected within EBL. You can also return items early by going to the Info tab for the eBook and selecting "Return Item".
