Using eBooks

The eBooks in this guide are available to read online or from your mobile device. There are several things to know:

Reading EBooks Online

  • The easiest way to use eBooks is to read the books online. Simply click the title, log in and click the Full Text link or Read Online link. There is typically a table of contents to help you navigate more easily through the book.

  • Most eBooks offer the ability to download limited portions of the book. Each eBook record includes details regarding how much of it can be saved to a PDF. To download a portion: Click the down arrow next to the chapter you would like to download. Follow the prompts. See this guide for additional assistance: How can I print or save EBSCO eBook pages as a PDF?

  • Most of the online eBooks can be highlighted and notated, as well, when you have an account in EBSCO. ProQuest personal accounts are automatically created. As soon as you highlight the eBook in ProQuest, it will add it to your personal virtual bookshelf.

Reading eBooks on a Mobile Device

  • If you would like to read EBSCO eBooks on your mobile device, download the EBSCO mobile app from your app store. Find Luther Rice College and log in with your student login and search for the book in the app.

  • Axis 360 eBooks must be read online or on the mobile app. Check your app store for the Axis 360 app.

  • To read Axis 360 eBooks, you must login with your student email address and zip code.

Downloading Full EBooks

  • If you would like to download an eBook, it must be an Unlimited Access eBook and you will need the Adobe Digital Editions software program to download EBSCO and ProQuest eBooks. The download will expire within 1-2 weeks.

  • You will also need to agree to EBSCO's account terms, as downloading eBooks requires a personal EBSCO account.
