About Novanet Live Help

Adobe Digital Editions

To download ebooks, you'll need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed on your computer. You'll also need to use Adobe Digital Editions to transfer an ebook to a supported e-reader device.

Download a free copy of Adobe Digital Editions.

A free Adobe ID is also required to transfer the ebook to another device, but not if you’re reading it on the same computer. 

On iOS and Android devices you can use the Adobe Digital Editions app, which is free from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Downloading and Printing Chapters or Page Ranges

Printing or downloading a chapter or page range do the same thing - both options create a PDF that does not expire. The PDF can then be printed anytime or read offline.

ProQuest Ebooks

For most titles, up to 40% of the book can be printed or downloaded as a PDF.

Depending on publisher-specified limits, up to 100 pages of an EBSCO eBook can be printed, saved or emailed as a PDF file (per user) from within the eBook viewer to be printed at a later time.
