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 than the more common Adobe Reader.

2) To activate ADE you will need an Adobe ID. If you do not yet have an Adobe ID you can create one now before proceeding. Once you have an Adobe ID, open ADE on your computer, go to the Help menu, click "authorize," and enter your Adobe ID and password.
3) 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.
4) 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.
5) 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.
