Be aware that
- Not all collections will allow you to download an entire book, but you will be able to download chapters, at least.
- Most of our collections allow for unlimited users at one time, but a few don't. If you have trouble getting in, that may be why.
- You may need special software to read an ebook, such as Adobe Digital Editions. It's quick and easy to install.
