You can read e-books in the browser window without signing in or downloading them to your device. Simply click on either "Read Online" or "Online Reading" (1, 2).

To download the entire e-book, click on either of the "Full Download" links (1, 2) and follow the prompts in the pop-up window. If on desktop, you will need to install Adobe Digital Editions (learn more here [link]). If on mobile, you will need to install Bluefire Reader (learn more here [link]).

You can download chapters as PDFs, much as you would download articles in a database (3).

You can add books to your Bookshelf (4), which will save the books for you for later in your library account.
