Adobe Digital Editions

Ebook Central and Ebsco eBooks use the Adobe's eBook DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection. To download these eBooks, you need to download required software. If you do not wish to install this software, you can always read the ebooks online in the Ebook Central or EBSCO browser interface.

Note that for library eBooks (on platforms such as Ebook Central or Ebsco), eBook content will not synchronize across different devices linked to the same Adobe ID.

You must have an Adobe ID and install Adobe Digital Editions on your computer. Both of these are free. Check out Adobe FAQs for more information.

Bluefire Reader

There is now a Bluefire Reader windows app that can be used in place of Adobe Digital Editions on Windows desktops. Download Bluefire Reader for Windows

Tablet and Smartphone Users

If you are on a tablet or mobile device (Apple or Android), you will need to download an app that supports Adobe DRM to read ebooks on your device. The Bluefire Reader app is the most widely recommended of these, but there are others that you may prefer.
