EBSCO Ebooks: Download to a mobile device

Latest news

EBSCO is retiring its ebook app!

After May 30, 2018, you will need to use another app to read your EBSCO ebooks on a mobile device.  We recommend Bluefire. 

Option 1: Use a browser to find books, then download them using an ebook app

Step 2: Search and sign in

  • If you are accessing EBSCO eBooks from a device which is not on the State network, you will need to enter your user name and password for our proxy server.  You can request a user name and password using the link just above the text stating "Step 2."

Proxy server login

  • Choose to download your book and log into your personal EBSCO account.  If you don't have an account, you will be given the option to create one.
