EBSCO eBooks: Why Download?

Why Download?

Should I download an eBook or just read it online?

You can read an Ebsco eBook online within the database, or you can download the whole book.  There are benefits to both options:   

Reading Online Vs. Downloading

Pros of reading online:
  • Quicker and simpler--click the PDF Full Text link and start reading
  • Great for a quick browse
  • No software to download or accounts to create
Pros of downloading:
  • Save it to your computer or device
  • Nicer experience than reading in a browser
  • Bookmarks
  • Refer back to the eBook whenever--without searching the catalog

If your choice is to download the eBook, click the "For Desktop" tab at the top of the page
