- 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.
