EBSCO eBooks: View or Download EBSCO eBooks

Reading EBSCO eBooks

You have two options for reading EBSCO eBooks:  viewing online in EBSOhost or downloading the eBook to your computer.

By viewing online, you "check out" the book for 30 minutes.  Other users cannot access the eBook during this time.

If you download an eBook, you can "check out" the book for up to 7 days.  This means that after that period (you select how long), the book will be removed from the computer where it was downloaded.
