What can I do with ebooks in ProQuest Ebook Central?

  • The printing and copying allowances are based on percentages of the total length of the book. These percentages are set by the publishers and vary from title to title. 
  • The number of pages available to print and copy are listed on the detail page for each book.

Download (to your computer or a mobile device)

  • You can download chapters or entire books to your desktop, laptop, or mobile devices. 
  • Not all ebooks will be available to download.
  • All mobile devices are supported except for Kindle Fire.
  • You are required to install Adobe Digital Editions if downloading to a personal computer, or Bluefire if downloading to a mobile device (Apple, Android).  This software is free.
