EBSCO eBooks Support: EBSCO Mobile App

Download eBooks to the EBSCO Mobile App

If you have already downloaded the Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) app, there is no need to download the EBSCO Mobile app.

Download the EBSCO Mobile app if you you want to access and read eBooks via the EBSCO mobile app only. A current TAFE NSW username and password is required to authenticate the app.

If you want to download eBooks to a desktop or laptop for offline reading, you will need to use the ADE app. The ADE app is recommended if you want an app that can also be used with other eBook platforms e.g. ProQuest eBook Central.

*Chromebooks that support Android apps via Google Play.
