Yes, while each e-book platform is slightly different in it's set-up, you should have JavaScript and cookies enabled.

To read or download most ebooks from the Library, you will need Adobe Digital Editions on your device.

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

For more information on creating an Adobe ID, see Manage your Adobe ID account


**If you are using a computer on campus or on a shared workspace you should not select the option to download e-books.

**You should select the 'Read Online' option. You do need to download any additional software to read ebooks on computers on campus.


For specific advice on the requirements of a number of the platforms, please go to the E-Book LibGuide
