Purchasing and Downloading e-Books from Guilford
|1)||In order to read e-books on your computer or device, you first will need to download and activate the free e-book management software, Adobe Digital Editions (ADE).
Please note: Adobe Digital Editions is a different product from the more common Adobe Reader.
|2)||After activating ADE, you can optionally test your software and system configuration with this free sample download. We recommend that you do this before placing your order, as e-book purchases are nonrefundable.|
|3)||To order your e-book, you can search for e-books or browse e-books by subject area. Once you find your e-book, add it to your shopping cart. Click on "checkout" when you are finished shopping.|
|4)||After the ordering process, you will be taken to a confirmation page that will prompt you to download your e-book. The download process will usually take between two seconds and two minutes, depending on the speed of your connection. ADE should open automatically and install your new e-book into your library. You can now read your e-book on your computer or transfer it to a compatible device.|
iPad/iPhone users: Please refer instead to our iPad/iPhone Guide.
