MCC - eBooks and Audiobooks

The purpose of this guide is to familiarize patrons with finding, accessing, downloading eBooks and to introduce users to all of the tools available with eBooks.

Emailing eBooks

When accessing an eBook through EBSCO, you may want to email the eBook to yourself. This allows you to access the eBook at a later time without having to go through the search process again. The option to email the eBook is under the Tools navigation pane on the right side of the web page. 

However, if you do not have an account with EBSCO, you will not be able to retrieve the eBook from the email that you send. When you click on the hyperlink within the email, you are taken to a page that asks for a username and password.

Unfortunately there is no option to create an account on the sign-in page linked through the email you receive.

The way around this issue is to create an EBSCO account before emailing eBooks to yourself. To do this, select Sign In on the top navigation bar of the home page or eBook record within EBSCO.

You will be taken to a log-in page that has the option to create a new account:

Select Create one now and follow the instructions to create an EBSCO account. Once you have created the account, you will have a username and password that you can use to retrieve eBooks that you have emailed to yourself.

If you have already emailed the eBook to yourself, you can click here to access the EBSCO eBook database's main page, where you will be able to select Sign In on the top navigation bar and follow the instructions above to create an account. Once you have created an account, you can return to the link in your email and access the eBook that you sent.
