How can I download or print this e-book?
The library offers ebooks from a variety of vendors and publishers, and in some cases, print or download options may not be available for a specific ebook. Please ask at the Information desk or contact us through chat or by phone if you have questions.
Options to read an e-book
- Read Online will let you scroll through the book and read it from your browser. Generally, this is the fastest and easiest way to read an ebook.
- Print / Copy options are useful if you are only interested in a small portion of the book - a chapter, for instance. Due to copyright restrictions and publisher rules, the number of pages you can save or print are usually limited to somewhere between 20 and 80 pages. Some ebooks may not offer this option at all.
- Full Download offers the possibility to "rent" the book and read it more easily on devices. While you may see "PDF download", you are generally required to download a free software called Adobe Digital Editions. Adobe Digital Editions is the e-reader for these books, and you will be able to keep the book downloaded for the period listed on the book record (usually 7-14 days, although some e-books may allow up to 180 days). Once the loan period passes, the book will leave your device.
