Increasingly, Rutgers Libraries provides access to a large number of ebook collections from scholarly publishers. You can browse the titles, read the books, download some chapters and print them out. You can also provide links to individual book title as a course reading. Some publishers allow you to download the entire book, while the rest of them let you view the chapters online and download some of the pages.
Due to Digital Rights Management, some publishers require you to download Adobe Digital Edition to read the ebook. Please note that Adobe Digital Edition is different from Adobe PDF reader. Some publishers such as EBSCO or Proquest also require you to create an account with them before you can download the ebook.
If you have difficulties downloading Adobe Digital Edition while using Proquest Ebook Central, an alternative will be to select "Read Online". Instead of choosing "Full Download," clicking on "Read Online" will allow you to read and download the pages. "Read Online" does not require the installation of Adobe Digital Edition.
