EBSCO eBook FAQs

  • The "Download this ebook (offline)" link doesn't show up. Can I still download it?

    • No. Due to licensing agreements, some EBSCO ebooks will not be available for download. If you don’t see the “Download this ebook (offline)” link, then you can’t download it.

  • Can I download the ebooks to my Kindle?

    • You can download the ebooks to a Kindle Fire, but not to a regular Kindle. The EBSCO ebooks use an Adobe DRM format that the regular Kindles cannot read.

  • How much time do I have left with my ebook?

    • You can download an ebook for 1-7 days. Login to your EBSCO account, and look in “my checkouts.” You will see the time remaining with your ebook.

  • The ebook is still on my device, but the checkout time has expired. How do I get rid of it in Adobe Digital Editions?

    • In Adobe Digital Editions, right-click on the cover and click “Remove from library.” Then go into the “My Digital Editions” folder under My Documents and delete the PDF.

  • Can I check in an ebook before the checkout period is over?

    • No. Because these ebooks can be transferred between devices, you have to just let the time expire.
