Can I download an e-Book (Ebrary, or other) to my mobile device? iPad?
Last Updated: Oct 19, 2023     Views: 86

It depends on the agreement we have with the vendor. Not all e-books are downloadable. Some publishers allow partial downloading, a specific number of pages or chapters, and some do not permit any downloading. Older devices may not be able to download an e-book that's in a newer format.

USM students, faculty, and staff have access to e-books that are marked: USM Access, UM System-Wide Access, UMS Electronic Resources, and DownLoad Library (CloudLibrary).

If you are having trouble with a specific e-book, please contact us for assistance.
