Viewing eBooks

After you click on the EOU Online Access link for a particular eBook you may need to select your institution (EOU) to access the eBook platform where you can view and/or download the eBook. It is generally easier to view and read the eBook in a web browser. However, you do have the option of downloading eBooks for offline reading, but this usually requires downloading the Adobe Digital Editions software or the Bluefire Reader app.

Pierce Library has eBooks through many different platforms and each one has a slightly different process for viewing the eBook. Below are links to instructions for three of the most common platforms.

If you have questions regarding another platform, please see a librarian.
