eBooks: Downloading eBooks from EBSCO eBooks

An introduction to the CSU eBook collection

Downloading from EBSCO eBooks

Note: At this time, eBooks from EBL, Ebrary, and EBSCO can't be "checked out" from Morgan Library public computers since the download must stay with the copy of Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) it is downloaded to and is only transferrable to the devices synced to that copy of ADE.  The online preview is available at library workstations.

How to Download

When you click an EBSCO ebook record, you get the following screen.  Remember, these can only be downloaded on your personal computer, not on Morgan Library workstations. Note that EBSCO requires you set up a free account to download books.  For downloading eBooks (those that are available for check-out & downloading) and reading them off-line on your computer or portable device,  Adobe Digital Editions is required.

When setting up an account, look for the "Create New Account" tab in the login screen:


If you elect to view the item, it will appear in a viewing pane.


If you elect to download, you will get a download window - note you must download Adobe Editions to download the book.  A link for downloading Adobe Digital Editions is supplied.  Make sure to authorize your account with the Adobe ID you set up.

Make sure you download to the "My Digital Editions" folder  in your "My Documents" folder - this is where Adobe Digital Editions will look for the item to display it in your library.
