Tips and Tricks

-On your personal computer or device, create your EBSCO account first.

-Download any required software for your specific device.

-If you want to take notes on an eBook, either use Online view from EBSCO or use a third party product. It is not recommended to take notes within Adobe Digital Editions, as the notes are difficult to read and process after the book is checked in.

-You may have to disable a firewall to allow access to Adobe Digital Editions.

-Items check out for 21 days. After 21 days, they automatically check back in. If you cannot open the book, make sure that it was not checked back in.
