To download (or check out) ebooks, the steps (as well number of days you're allowed to keep it) will vary depending on the vendor who supplies the book. Each ebook vendor sets its own policies regarding downloading or printing, and the APUS Library has no control over these policies

Here are examples from two of our most popular book vendors:

Ebook Central:  Download a chapter at a time, or entire books.

EBSCO eBook: You will need to set up a free personal account before you can download a book (find instructions here).

Other book vendors  allow different amounts of copying or downloading.  You can usually find out by looking for a "help", "download" or "check out" link when you're viewing the book you'd like to try to download.  Click here for vendor-specific tutorials.

If you're having trouble finding the options you need, let us know the title of the book you want, and we'll look into it.
