You must create an EBSCO / EBSCOhost account if you want to download or place a hold for EBSCO ebooks.

When you click on the ‘Full Download’ option, you will see the option to sign in using an EBSCOhost account.


Sign in with your EBSCOhost login.

If you don't have an EBSCOhost / EBSCO login, select 'Sign up' to create one.


When you’ve signed in, you will be presented with the below pop up,

Select the relevant option PDF/EPUB according to the device you are using.

You must have Adobe Digital Editions installed on your device.

If you are using Adobe Digital Editions on your own device for the first time, you need to authorize Adobe Digital Editions using an Adobe ID or a Vendor ID
