Harvard Library provides access to ebooks from a number of different companies. There are limits to the number of pages you can download for many of these ebooks. Certain ebooks in the EBSCO eBook Collection and ProQuest Ebook Central, formerly ebrary Digital Library, can be checked out (downloaded in their entirety) for a set period of time.

 

EBSCO ebooks

Again, you will be prompted to log in to your ebrary account. You can add the book to Adobe Digital Editions on your computer or to BlueFire Reader on your mobile device.
