In the detailed record for an eBook, you can learn about publisher permissions like the ability to print or save pages or copy/paste from an eBook. You can also see the concurrent user level which tells you how many people can view the eBook at the same time.
To read the eBook offline on your computer, you will need to download Adobe Digital Editions and authorize it with your Adobe ID. If you do not have an Adobe ID you can create one. Once Adobe Digital Editions is downloaded and authorized, check out an eBook and download it to read it in the Adobe Digital Editions program rather than the browser.
EBSCO has a new mobile app that allows for searching for and reading articles and eBooks and listening to eAudiobooks on mobile devices. Find and install the app in your phone's app store. Start typing in "Indian River State College" until you see it listed. Select Indian River State College from the list. You will then log in with your MyPioneerPortal credentials.
