Mobile Ebooks

Intro to the guide

Most of the eBooks at your library are downloadable to a mobile device, whether an eReader, smartphone, or tablet. However, figuring out which device will work with which eBooks, and how much of an eBook is downloadable is not always easy. Various eBook collections come in different formats, which work with different devices. Also each collection has its own restrictions in terms of how much of the book can be downloaded.

This guide will help you understand which eBooks at your library work with what reader by outlining the different formats of each collection, which devices work with those formats, and then how much of each eBook can be downloaded (if at all). This is useful information if you are looking at purchasing a new mobile device on which to read eBooks.
