eResource Basics

New to eBooks?  There are a few things you need to set up if you are checking out eBooks for the first time.  Depending on what vendor your library is using for eResources (eBooks, eAudiobooks, ePubs, etc.) will determine what you will need to download for your device.

Getting Started

What eResource vendors does your library use?  Your library could use Axis 360, OverDrive, and/or 3M.  Check with your library staff to see which ones are available at your library.  This topic will help sort out what is required for the format you want to use with Axis 360 or OverDrive.  For instructions on how to download click the applicable link for the desired format.  A list of compatible devices is also shown for each format
