eBooks at Olympic College: To Phones/Tablet computers

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

Before You Begin:

To download eBooks on EbscoHost to a mobile phone, iPod, or tablet computer, you will need to first download an appropriate eBook reader app.  EbscoHost does NOT have its own app for downloading and reading eBooks.  Some popular eBook reader apps are listed at right.  Different apps may work better on different devices.  We find that at this time BlueFire Reader is a consistent app for downloading and reading eBooks on EbscoHost on both iOS and Android devices, but there are others that may work well or better for your device.  You will probably need an Adobe ID to download our eBooks to the app.

You may find that you need to download the file to your computer and then tranfer it to the device.  You can do this manually with your USB cord, or you may find the use of a cloud-based document storage app, such as DropBox, helpful.  Dropbox also integrates smoothly with the BlueFire Reader app.
