Checking Out an ePUB/PDF eBook

1. Before checking out an ePUB/PDF-formatted eBook from Axis360, you must have the Adobe Digital
Editions
 installed on your PC or your device. If you have not installed Adobe Digital Editions,
please go to http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions/download.html.

2. Once Adobe Digital Editions is installed, open a web browser and go back to the Axis360 website to check out an eBook (hover over the cover of an available title and click "Checkout."). If you are not signed in, you will be prompted to enter your 14-digit library card number and PIN/password.

3. Under "My Stuff," locate your title and click the "Download to transfer to the e-reader" button. An .ACSM (Adobe Content Server Manager) file will start downloading to your computer or device. Open this file in Adobe Digital Editions. 

4. When "Computer Authorization" displays in Adobe Digital Editions, check the box "I want to authorize my computer without an ID" in the lower left corner. On the next screen, click "Authorize." Your eBook will now load in your Adobe Digital Editions bookshelf.

Transferring your ePUB eBook to your eReader if you don't have WiFi

Most newer eReaders have WiFi capacity which will allow your eBook to be delivered wirelessly to your device. If your device is older and doesn't have WiFi, you may plug your eReader into your computer and drag and drop your eBook to your device using Adobe Digital Editions.

Returning eBook Early

Once a digital loan expires, it will automatically be returned to Axis360. So it's not necessary to return an eBook early. But if you want to return the eBook early, right-click on the cover of the title you'd like to return and click "Return Borrowed Item." When prompted with "Are you sure you want to return this item?” click "Return."
