eBook Platforms: EBSCO

TUC Library offers eBooks on numerous platforms, which all have their own features and quirks. Use this guide to help figure out how to use eBooks on the different platforms.

Reading, Printing, & Downloading EBSCO eBooks


TUC has access to thousands of EBSCO eBooks

Some titles are single-user only, and some titles can have unlimited use

You can find EBSCO eBooks by searching the Library Catalog, searching EBSCO eBooks, or searching across all databases in EBSCO. 

On the left side you should see the following options:

Both the eBook Full Text and Table of Contents links take you to online reading of the eBook.


When you are reading an EBSCO eBook online, you should see icons on the right side that include a print icon. You can print, or save to pdf, sections of the eBook, usually no more than 60 pages at a time.


If you would like to download the eBook to read offline, you will be prompted to create a My EBSCOhost account and login. All EBSCO eBooks may be downloaded for 7 days and read using Adobe Digital Editions. However, if it is a single-user title it will be unavailable to others while downloaded, and there is no early return of downloaded titles.
