EBSCO Ebooks Guide - Put it on Your Device

EBSCO eBooks App

EBSCO provides an app that makes it easy to download ebooks to a phone or tablet.

Note: most of the books are in PDF format and don't resize well on small screens; iPads or other tablets will work better.

To use this app, you will need an My EBSCOhost account and an Adobe ID. Details on these accounts are provided on the Download/Read Offline page.

When you open the app, you will be prompted to authorize it with your Adobe ID.

Find a Book Using the App

You can select Sacramento City College from the Library Locator.

Find a library: United States and California selectedFind a Library; Sacramento City College displayed

You can then search the collection. Use the Download (Offline) links to download titles to your device.

You'll also be able to view any titles you downloaded from a desktop/laptop computer if you sign in to My EBSCOhost and navigate to My Checkouts.

Download Ebooks You've Already Checked Out

If you sign in to My EBSCOhost on a desktop/laptop computer, you can use the Download (Offline) links to check out ebooks. When you open the EBSCO ebooks app on your mobile device, you can go to your folder, sign in and the books will appear under My Checkouts.
