eBooks at Olympic College: To Nook/Kobo/SonyReader

Find out how to search and download eBooks at Olympic College Library.

Before you Begin...

To transfer to a dedicated eBook reader such as a Nook, Sony Reader, or Kobo, you will first need to download the eBook to your computer, following the steps in the previous tab, “Download to PC.”  Then follow the directions below, or see the tutorials for specific devices at lower right of this page. 

eBooks on EbscoHost are not compatible with Kindles.  See your local public library website to search for eBooks that are compatible with Kindle.

To transfer...

To transfer an EbscoHost eBook from Adobe Digital Editions to your portable device:

Open your downloaded EbscoHost eBook in Adobe Digital Editions. If you have not authorized Adobe Digital Editions with your Adobe ID on this computer, you will need to complete that step first. You will be prompted to enter your Adobe ID and Password the first time you try to open a EbscoHost eBook with Digital Editions on your computer.

Connect your portable device to your computer.

Adobe Digital Editions automatically detects the presence of your device and offers to authorize it with your Adobe ID. Just as the Adobe Digital Editions software must be authorized with your Adobe ID, the portable device must also be authorized to be able to transfer protected content to and from the device. After authorization, the device appears as a new bookshelf in your library.

Transfer items to and from the device bookshelf by clicking on the book title, then dragging and dropping the title into the device bookshelf.

Note: Do not disconnect the device while you are in the process of transferring a title to the device.
