1. Download and install Adobe Digital Editions to your computer.
2. If you don't already have one, create an Adobe ID.
3. Using a web browser, open Park's eBook Collection (EBSCOhost) website to search for ebooks. Off-campus users will first be prompted to login using their Park ID and password.
Downloading or checkout of an EBSCO ebook is only necessary to read the ebook offline, i.e. without an Internet connection.
EBSCO ebooks may be checked out for offline viewing for 7-14 days depending on the licensing terms for that title. EBSCO ebooks cannot be "renewed," but they can be downloaded again if licenses are open.
Adobe Digital Editions is designed to work with assistive technologies on Mac and Windows. You must separately install/enable these applications. Installation instructions can be found on the respective web sites (JAWS, NVDA, or Window-Eyes on Windows and VoiceOver on Mac).
Free NaturalReader may also be used for reading ebooks (as image captures) and other electronic documents.
