ProQuest Ebook Central has a built-in Reader that allows users to read, search, and annotate ebooks online. You can bring a ebook into the Reader by clicking on "Read Online." The "Read Online" icon appears in the list of search results next to each title as well as in the "Table of Contents and More" view.
In addition to being able to read the ebook in the Ebook Central Reader, in most cases, library patrons will be able to download chapters and full ebooks.
Downloading chapters or pages
Users may download chapters, pages, or a range of pages in real PDF. PDFs are searchable, selectable, and include a citation. They do not expire. There are limits to the number of pages a user may print or download. The typical allowance for most titles is approximately 40% of the ebook.
Downloading full ebooks
Users may download ebooks to computers, tablets, and phones. Most titles support multiple users simultaneously, however some are single-user, meaning when a user downloads an ebook it becomes "checked out" from the Library. When you chose to download a whole ebook, you will need to specify the type of device you will be using and will be guided through the rest of the download process.
On iOS and Android devices, you can use the Adobe Digital Editions app, which is free from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
You can use other reader apps as long as they are able to handle the Adobe DRM (Digital Rights Management). Search in the app store of your choice for e.g. 'adobe drm reader' or just 'adobe drm' to get a list of potentially suitable apps.
Please note: You do need an Adobe ID to be able to read downloaded books on a mobile device.
