Browser settings

If you can only see the first page of an eBook open in Adobe Reader, or a new PDF is opened each time you turn an eBook page, this is probably due to a setting in Adobe Reader (or your PDF reader.) To correct this, you should change your setting to open PDFs within your web browser's window. Follow these step-by-step instructions.

 

Downloading basics

Up to 60 pages of an EBSCO eBook can be printed or saved per user as a PDF file from within the eBook Full Text viewer.  See EBSCO's step-by-step instructions on printing and saving sections of an ebook.   Follow device-specific instructions on the right to download entire ebooks.

 

Early Return of ebooks

Most of our ebooks are purchased with a single user license. You can return your ebook before the end of the checkout period to enable other SIUC users to access that title.  Follow the simple instructions on the EBSCO Support site.
