Download and Save/Print Ebook Chapters

Most ebooks provide the option to download individual chapters up to a specific number of pages from the full book. The limits are set by the publishers and can vary widely.

Some ebooks don't allow any downloads. Others are completely DRM-free and allow downloading the entire text.

Requirements for Full Download and Check Out

To read an ebook on your computer or mobile device while you are offline, you can use the Download option. Several components are required before you will be able to download an ebook in most cases.

  1. Adobe Digital Editions must be installed on your computer. Free download is available online from Adobe.
  2. Create an Adobe ID. You will be prompted to use it to Authorize your computer if needed.
  3. Create a personal account with the ebook provider (EBSCOhost only) and sign in.
Note: When connected to the internet, choose Read Online or PDF Full Text to read an ebook. Downloading is not required.
