-- EBL requires patrons to enter their username and password, even if they are on campus.
-- EBL has unlimited usage, so you won't be shut out even if someone else is reading the same book.
-- Browse: You can look at the book for a few minutes, and then you'll be prompted to "request a loan." If you want to keep reading, do that.
-- Occasionally, EBL will not let you borrow the book but instead will ask you for your name and e-mail. Enter them, and you will get a message saying that a "request to borrow the book has been sent to the library and is pending approval." This happens because your "checkout" of the book will trigger a purchase by the library, but the purchase must be "approved" because of the book's cost. Within a few hours, your request will be "approved" by our Head of Collections and you will get a note saying that the book is available.
-- Printing and copying:
DETAILS will tell you how many more pages you can print or copy.
NOTES will allow you to create notes about different pages, and EXPORT them, if you want to save them. Do this BEFORE the loan period expires.
DOWNLOAD lets you download the book to your computer or laptop.
When your "loan period" is over, the book will show as "expired" in your ADE:
Problems with printing from EBL are usually related to Adobe Reader preferences and/or browser settings.
Make sure that:
Firefox vs. PDF
Firefox sometimes creates problems with the PDF view. To avoid these, switch to another browser OR use the "image" view instead of PDF.
