Downloading Scholarly eBooks to eReaders
The Ebrary database of electronic books now allows users to download entire eBooks to their computer desktop or to most of the major eReaders on the market (with the exception of the Kindle) using Adobe Digital Editions software. YOU WILL HAVE THE EBOOK FOR 14 DAYS after which it will expire from your device or computer and you have to re-download it to read it again. For more information read this blog. To learn how to do it through the James P. Adams Library website, watch the video below. For more information on eBooks at the library, see this addtional libguide.
NOTE: The examples in this video are done using the Firefox web browser (http://www.mozilla.org/ ) which is an alternative to Internet Explorer and can be downloaded for free. When downloading and opening eBook files, Internet Explorer users will need to turn off their pop up blocker under the Tools menu. For any questions contact Kieran Ayton at email@example.com.

Kindle Fire and Ebrary?
We were asked about the new Kindle Fire, which is a tablet as well as an eReader ... No, the Kindle Fire does not run Adobe Digital Editions, so you cannot download entire Ebrary books to it.
However, it does read PDFs, and you can create a PDF (of up to 60 pages) in Ebrary, so you can download that much of an Ebrary book to a Kindle Fire.
