Only while on-site and excluding a few ebook providers.
Note that we have very few fiction ebooks (novels). Some ebook providers do not offer downloads (Safari's computer science-related ebooks are a good example). Some ebook providers allow only one person to download an ebook for a set duration, often a week.
Whenever possible, we purchase ebooks from providers that offer PDF downloads (often one PDF per chapter). Bt some providers use Digital Rights Managment (DRM) to restrict how their ebooks work. You'll need to create a profile on the sites of those provders and also download Adobe Digital Editions.
See our ebooks page for details on how ebooks work from the various providers and platforms we subscribe to.
If you want to put one of our ebooks on an ereader like a Kindle, Nook, or tablet device, the process will vary based on the format of the ebook. Most devices support PDFs. Advanced devices will support Adobe DIgital Editions for DRM'd books.
