It is not possible to read all e-books online in the web browser. Instead, you'll need to download them to your computer. For instance, you can download Ebsco and ProQuest e-books and read them using Adobe Digital Editions Reader. If you wish to read an e-book offline, you must download it to the reader.
Each e-book service has its own loan periods for e-books. Titles you have borrowed from the service will automatically be returned at the end of their lending periods. We recommend you to return the e-book early if you don't need it any more. Then it will be available for other patrons.
