Many of the eBooks in the eBook Academic Collection (EBSCOhost) allow users to download the eBooks to an eBook reader (such as Kindle or Nook) or to a computer.
Before you can download an eBook, you'll need to create an account with EBSCO if you haven't yet done so. This is a free account between you and EBSCO, so you can use whatever username and password you'd like. Just click on the option to "Create a new Account" from the Sign In to MyEBSCOhost screen.

You'll also need to have Adobe Digital Editions because of digital rights management (a method of protecting copyright). Once you download the eBook, it'll be placed in the Adobe Digital Editions software (kind of like an app). Then, once your checkout limit has been reached, the software will automatically remove the eBook from your device.
Once you've logged in to your EBSCO account, you'll need to follow a few steps to download the eBook.
