"Did you know that many of the ebooks licensed by the Library can be downloaded to your computer or portable device? The downloading capability is not available for all ebooks, because some publishers restrict downloading. Most ebooks in the Library's collection from Ebsco, which comprises over 100,000 titles, can be downloaded.
Unfortunately, the process is not as straight-forward as you might find on a Kindle or similar device, but with a little set up it is pretty straight-forward. There is a LibGuide that outlines the process for the ebooks from Ebsco and from several other publishers. It can be found here: http://libguides.hofstra.edu/download_ebooks"
