Notes
E-Book reading requires Adobe Digital Editions software be available on your computer and you must create a personal Adobe account. Adobe Digital Editions is available on campus computers and is a free download for your personal computer. E-Audiobook listening requires the EBSCO Download Manager software be available on your computer. It is not available on campus computers, but is a free download for your personal computer.

Most titles in this collection are one-copy/one-user-at-a-time titles that are "signed out" for a seven-day period. To do so, a "My EBSCOhost" account must be created (free of charge). Users may place a request for titles that are currently checked out by other users.

Regarding any CD or DVD content that accompanied the original print book: "...we can only provide what the publisher is willing to send us. For the time being, I don't believe any of our eBooks come with accompanying CD-ROM content, even if available. Unfortunately, this can only change if publishers decide to supply such information" (20 October 2010 e-mail response from previous vendor, NetLibrary).
