How to down­load your Ebrary ebook for the first time, in 18 easy steps

ebrary

Ebrary makes it really simple to download a chapter: just click the “Download” button but unfortunately downloading an entire ebook can be a little tricky particularly the first time.

In order to download an entire ebook you’ll need an ebrary account, Adobe Dig­i­tal Edi­tions and an Adobe ID.

Here’s our step-by-step guide:

1. Once you’ve found your ebook, click the “Down­load Button.” 

Sign in2. In order to down­load a book, you have to cre­ate an Ebrary account - click the sign in at the top right-hand side of the page. This may automatically sign you in but if not click “Create an Account”

3. Once you cre­ate the account, you have to sign in, of course. From now on, you’ll be prompted to sign in when you want to download.

4. You’re not quite done. Get­ting the par­tial ebook on PDF is easy, but to get the entire book you have to down­load Adobe Dig­i­tal Edi­tions.

5. At the Adobe Dig­i­tal Edi­tions site, find the download link

9. Then click “Install”

10. One more click and we’re done!

11. Well, almost you still have a lit­tle set­ting up to do. It turns out you can’t down­load the ebook with­out cre­at­ing accounts with both Ebrary and Adobe. So it’s time to do that.

12.  Fill in all that infor­ma­tion and click “Create.”

10

13. Suc­cess! Adobe Dig­i­tal Edi­tions is activated.

14. Only you don’t have any books yet. So go back to the Ebrary down­load page and click “OK.”

15. Now you’ll get a prompt to down­load the ebook. Click “Save.”

7

16. Give it a proper filename – the title of the book is normally a good idea.

17.  If Adobe Digital Editions does not open the file automatically, locate the ebook on your hard drive and double-click the file to open it in Adobe Digital Editions

11

18. And now we have our book. Through Adobe Dig­i­tal Edi­tions, it can be moved to var­i­ous ebook read­ers and devices. Unfor­tu­nately, despite hav­ing accounts with both Ebrary and Adobe at this point, it doesn’t sync across com­put­ers. So if you down­load a book onto one com­puter using Adobe Dig­i­tal Edi­tions, you won’t be able to log into Adobe from another com­puter and access the book.

So, there you have it. How to down­load your Ebrary ebook for the first time, in 18 easy steps.
