You only need to download an ebook if you want to read it in a mobile device or if you plan to use it when you are not connected to the internet. In most cases, you can read the ebook and make notes and print selections all from within the ebook platform interface, without having to download the book.
Many of Sewanee library's ebooks are protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) systems.
DRM systems control the use of digital content, such as downloadable songs, DVDs and CDs, games, and of course, ebooks.
This video will show you how to install ADE software on your computer or laptop, download a DRM-protected ebook into ADE, and then transfer that ebook onto an e-reader (in this case, a Nook).
