How do I download an ebook from EBSCO?

I would like to download an ebook from the EBSCO Academic Ebook Collection to read offline. 


All EBSCO Ebooks can be read directly online in the database, no download needed. 

Many of the ebooks are also DRM Free which means they can be downloaded with few limitations. 

Some of the ebooks are more restricted. To download those ebooks to read offline, you will need to take the following steps:  

1. Create a personal EBSCO Account. This account is free but will not be connected to your FCC account. You can create an account by going to the EBSCO Ebook database and clicking "Sign In" in the menu at the top of the page.

2. Download Adobe Digital Collections. This software is free, but required to download copies of books that are not DRM-Free. 

3. Some books can only be downloaded/viewed by one or two people at a time. If your download is denied or you are not able to access the book online it is likely the number of downloads/viewers for that title has been reached and you should check back later.

If you have any questions or run into any problems, please contact us so we can help troubleshoot the issue:
