Downloading Ebrary eBooks to iPads and iPhones

INITIAL SETUP VIA YOUR COMPUTER’S BROWSER:

1. Go to your ebrary site and sign in to your personal ebrary account as usual.

You’ll need to do this at least once every 90-days to validate use on the mobile app

If you don’t already have a personal ebrary account, create one as described here http://support.ebrary.com/kb/to-create-ebrary-account

2. Create an Adobe Digital Editions ID. Remember the ID and Password you create.

To create an Adobe account:

1) Go to https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/membership
2) Click “Create an account
3) Fill in at least the starred fields…
4) Click “OK

ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE (phone, tablet) running iOS (4.3 or higher) or Android (2.1 or higher):

Install the ebrary app from the “App Store” icon on your device.

Note, to access the Apple App Store, you’ll need an Apple account; to create one without a credit card see: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2534

*Once you’ve installed the ebrary app, tap to open it

*The First time you sign in to the app, you’re prompted for your Ebrary personal account username and password

*Then enter your Adobe Digital Editions ID username and password that you created above

*Search the Ebrary interface to find a book you would like to download.

*Tap the "download" button

*The book will remain on your device for 14 days

 

To read a book you downloaded via the mobile app:

  1. Open the ebrary app (you don’t need to sign in since you’ll be offline viewing)
  2. Click on the “Downloads” icon at the bottom left to view your list of downloaded books
  3. Click to open the book you want to read

To return an ebrary book that you downloaded via the mobile app:

  1. Open the ebrary app and Sign In as usual
  2. Click on the “Downloads” icon at the bottom left to view your list of downloaded books
  3. Click to open and view the book you want to return
  4. Tap to bring up the controls
  5. Where you had previously seen a “Download” button (NOT the “Downloads” icon at the bottom left), it should now say “Return Download”
  6. Click the “Return Download” button and the book will be returned
