A lot of the eBooks available from the University Library can be downloaded as PDF files to your personal device. This eBooks guide will help you work with the eBooks that aren't so straight forward. If you have questions we haven't answered here, you can always Ask!
Most eBooks will let you:
Do I have to be connected to the Internet to read e-books?
Not if you have already downloaded the book. You will need the Internet to download the book to your personal device.
How long can I read an eBook I've downloaded?
Each publisher sets custom borrowing periods. When you download the eBook, the number of days you have the book "checked out" will be displayed.
Can I renew an eBook?
Not really. Once the borrowing period expires, if you want to keep the book longer, you will have to go to the platform and check it out again if it's available.
Can I put a hold on an eBook?
Not at this time. The loan periods for eBooks are shorter, and non-renewable.
