Library users can now download eBooks. There are thousands of titles now available and they can be downloaded 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This free service is open to library members across Northern Ireland.
Almost 25,000 eBook items in the Libraries NI catalogue can be downloaded to most eBook readers and handheld devices, including some mobile phones as well as to personal computers.
There are no reservations fees and no fines, with the books automatically expiring when the loan period finishes.
This is progressive and very welcome. Here’s the link to Libraries NI.
You can download up to nine titles and have them for three weeks, after which they will just disappear from the device to which you have downloaded them.
The DRM is Adobe ePub DRM which you have to access through OverDrive
I’d also direct you to my earlier post about Libraries.
