eBook formats

EBSCO's online reader provides books in two formats, PDF and EPUB. Many books are available in both formats, while others are available only in one format.

  • PDF format books have distinct pages, which allow for page-level citations. They have a fixed page size that may not work well on all devices or screen sizes/zoom levels. PDF eBooks are compatible with screen readers using an ASCII text layer.
  • EPUB books automatically resize to fit your screen, and are composed of HTML. This format inherently works well with screen readers as it was designed for accessibility and navigation. Most EPUBs contain heading levels that can be used to navigate within the content.

Books may also be downloaded in PDF and EPUB format:

  • Most full book downloads require Adobe Digital Editions reader, which is available for desktop or mobile. These files have the .acsm extension.
  • DRM-free downloads can be read using any PDF or EPUB reader. DRM-free files have the extension .pdf or .epub
    • To read a DRM-free EPUB file on a desktop, you can use Adobe Digital Editions or the new Thorium Reader.
    • To read a DRM-free EPUB file on your mobile device, there are many compatible apps, including iBooks, Google Play Books, Bluefire Reader, Aldiko, etc.
  • Partial book downloads (pages, chapters) are DRM-free and may be read using any PDF reader tool.
