To successfully download library e-books to your Nook, you'll need

  • Find a downloadable book on eBooks on EBSCOhost or Academic eBooks on EBSCOhost.
  • Log-in to your EBSCOhost account. If you don’t have My EBSCOhost account, create one (free).
  • Search for an e-book.
  • Click the Download (Offline) link for the e-book you would like to download/borrow.
  • Select a Checkout period from the drop-down menu and click the Checkout & Download button.
  • When a downloaded e-book is opened, it is displayed in Adobe Digital Editions
  • Connect your Nook to your computer using the USB cord that comes with your Nook.
  • Drag and Drop the titles you want to transfer from "All Items" in Adobe Digital Editions to your Nook folder.
  • Use the "Safely Remove Hardware" function on your computer.
  • On the Nook, e-books borrowed from the library are located in Library > My Files > Digital Edition.
  • If an ebook you are trying to download is not available, a “Sorry, this eBook is in use” message will pop up.
  • EBSCO e-books downloaded to your device automatically expire at the end of the pre-designated period. They are then rendered unusable and can be deleted from your device.
