Downloading EBSCO eBooks

EBSCOhost eBooks can be checked out and downloaded to computers, smartphones, and other devices for offline viewing. For a list of compatible devices see Which portable devices are compatible with EBSCO eBooks?

Checkout period: Checkout periods may vary from title to title. In general eBooks can be checked out for 1-30 days. Once the checkout period expires you will not be able to open the eBook on your computer/device. NOTE: If you finish an eBook before your checkout period expires please check it in manually so that others can view it.

Preliminary steps

Before you can download an eBook you must have either a MyEBSCOhost or a Google account. You will also need an Adobe ID. You only need to complete these steps once.

MyEBSCOhost or Google Accounts

  1. From within the eBooks database, click on Sign In (on the blue bar across the top).
  2. Sign on to your Google account or create a MyEBSCOhost account.
  3. To create a MyEBSCOhost account, click on Don't have an account? Create one now (at the bottom).
    Follow the on-screen instructions. EBSCO will ask for your name, e-mail address, a unique login name, password, and a secret question/answer in case you forget your login or password.
