The advantages of using eBooks are that
University of Suffolk staff and students have access to the Learning Services growing collection of eBooks (electronic books). You can find and access eBooks through Discovery.
All the eBooks we offer can be read on any computer connected to the internet as well as IPad and Android Devices over WiFi
You are often able to print or copy pages from an eBook, but the number of pages you will be able to print or copy will be limited by the publisher using DRM (Digital Rights Management). Once these limits are reached, the publisher will not allow you to print or copy any further text.
eBooks can not be downloaded to eBook readers
eBooks are compatible with all operating systems and popular web browsers; we do advise that you install the most recent OS and browser versions on your machine. Adobe Acrobat Reader or Adobe Digital Editions software is required to print/copy/download eBooks; this is available on all University network PCs.
If you are using your own PC, you can download the software for free from here
For downloading to IOS and Android phones and devices you will need to download Bluefire Reader from here
