If your e-book doesn't automatically open, you should be able to locate the file in the default download directory on your computer. If you have downloaded an EPUB file, you can search for recently added files with the file extension “.epub.” PDF files have the extension “.pdf.”


7.  What e-book formats does Guilford use?

The e-book formats available for a given title are clearly listed in the "E-BOOK" tab on the product page. Most of our e-books are offered in EPUB format, a widely supported, reflowable format that allows you to change the font size for easy reading. Some titles, for which the preservation of the exact look of the print book is important, are offered only in PDF format. Many Guilford e-books are available in both formats, so that you may download either or both with a single purchase.

Professors, please see our professor page for information about downloading free for adoption consideration PDF e-books.
