ebrary ebooks can be found under Database from the Library Homepage.

ebrary ebooks can be downloaded as PDF or as Adobe Digital Editions format (.acsm).

When you find an ebrary title, click on the DOWNLOAD button to see a menu of download options.

All titles can be downloaded by chapter or page range for up to 60 pages as a PDF. These files do not expire. You can keep them forever, and you can read them on a variety of devices, including the Amazon Kindle.

If you get the error message, "We're sorry, this title is not available in Adobe Digital Editions format for this library," it means a title cannot be downloaded in its entirety. When this occurs, use the chapter or page range options instead.
