  Using EBL e-books

  • EBL books can be read online in a browser - this is the easiest method and is recommended by the Library.
  • Downloading is useful if you have a personal computer or portable device.
  • Reading online requires that you have Adobe Reader installed (may not be required on a Mac). The Library recommends Adobe Acrobat 9 or higher.
  • When you choose to read a book online, you are first given 10 minutes to browse within it.
  • After this time, or if you want to print or copy any section, you are prompted to create a loan.
  • When you create a loan, the book continues to be available to you for 24 hours, and appears on your bookshelf which is available from the EBL homepage.
  • The bookshelf continues to display books you have read, even after the 24 hour period has expired, and you can access them for another 24 hour period at any time.
