In order to download and read e-books from EBSCO you will need the following:
- A supported e-book reader app:
- An Adobe ID to authorize your e-book reader app
- A personal EBSCOhost account to track your check-outs (you’ll be prompted to create this the first time you check out an e-book)
- To access the e-book collection, go to the the library homepage, look below the catalog search bar for the “Other Catalogs” listed, and click on “E-Books”.
- If you are off-campus, log in with your Covenant ID.
- Find the e-book that you would like to download and click the “Download” button.
- Log in to, or create, your personal My EBSCOhost account.
- Select a checkout period and download format (if applicable), and then click the “Download” button.
