Reading and downloading eBooks

Arrangements for viewing and downloading eBooks vary according to the collection they are in.

Generally, you can read an eBook online using the "read online" interface in the collection, or download the eBook to your computer or mobile device. Downloading to your computer requires the free software Adobe Digital Editions, while downloading to a device requires a free app - Bluefire Reader or Aldiko Book Reader (for android only).

There are sometimes limits on the number of concurrent users for an eBook, and often limits on how much you can print and copy.
