Adobe Digital Editions is a free software that might be required in order to be able to read library e-books offline and to transfer them to some e-book readers and other mobile devices. This free software can be downloaded from Adobe website.
After installation, the Setup Assistant wizard prompts you to activate Adobe Digital Editions (you must be online during this process). During activation, you have the option to authorize your computer with an Adobe ID. If you don't have an Adobe ID, creating one is free and only takes a minute. The Adobe ID enables you to transfer items protected by digital rights management (DRM) between multiple computers or devices and restore them after a data loss or system reinstallation.
To create an Adobe ID, go to https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/membership/index.cfm
The e-mail address that you used to register for your Adobe account is your Adobe ID.
If you have already created an Adobe ID to borrow e-books from your public library, etc., you can use the same ID to transfer GSU Libraries e-books to your device.
