Ebsco´s e-book collection
Ebsco eBooks is a collection of nearly 200,000 ebooks in a large number of subject areas.
You can read Ebsco's e-books online or download them in PDF or epub format.
Reserving borrowed books
Most books can be read by several people at the same time. Some titles may be limited to 1-3 simultaneous users. If a book is being read by another person, you can queue for it. You then receive an e-mail when the book becomes available.
Create your own account/bookshelf
You need a personal account with Ebscohost to be able to download books, make notes and save lists. Go to eBook Academic Collection (EBSCO) in the library´s database list and choose "More information about eBook Academic Collection (EBSCO)" and then "Create personal EBSCO account".
You can make bookmarks, crossings out and notes in the downloaded book. Notes are saved and you can see them the next time you log in to Ebsco.
Printing, copying and e-mailing pages
You can copy, e-mail and print a certain number of pages; usually this is 60 pages but it varies depending on publisher. The number of pages that can be printed is shown for the respective title under the heading "Publisher Permissions".
- Get an Adobe ID (How do I do this?)
- Create a personal account with Ebscohost and log in to Ebsco.
On your computer:
Download the Adobe Digital Editions software to your computer (if you have an FHS computer, it is already installed) and approve it with your Adobe ID.
On your mobile phone or tablet:
If you want to download the e-book to a mobile phone or tablet, you do not need to download Adobe Digital Editions, but you still need an Adobe ID, as well as an e-book application such as Bluefire reader that you approve with your Adobe ID.
