Using eBook Readers

Nooks and most other e-readers (except Kindle)

Since nearly all of our eBooks are in PDF format, you should be able to read the texts on personal devices which support PDF. You can download and use Adobe Digital Editions to transfer PDF files from your computer to most eBook readers except for the Kindle. Adobe Digital Editions can also be used for "checking out" titles from the EBSCO eBook collections.

Adobe Digital Editions is compatible with dozens of devices. We have developed specific directions for using Adobe Digital Editions with the Nook. The same directions should be adaptable to other devices which are compatible with Adobe Digital Editions.


Bluefire Reader is recommended for downloading our EBSCO eBooks for offline reading on  Apple iOS and Android devices. The software is not necessary if you are simply reading eBooks when visiting the EBSCO sites.


Although the Kindle is not compatible with Adobe Digital Editions, it is now possible to use Send to Kindle to email PDF files to your Kindle reader. The process is reasonably straightforward.
