Information for Kindle Users
eBooks on EBSCOhost uses Adobe Digital Editions for Digital Rights Management. The Kindle e-reader is not supported by Adobe Digital Editions; as a result, entire e-books from EBSCOhost cannot be transferred to Kindle devices.
Kindle users with wi-fi capabilities are able to read eBooks on EBSCOhost in the online reader (without downloading the e-book).
Kindle users can also send pages from an EBSCOhost e-book to a Kindle device as a .pdf file by following these instructions. This feature is usually limited to 60 pages from any one e-book, but this limit may vary by publisher.
