By far the easiest way to read eBooks on the E-Libro Premium database is to navigate to the site using the browser software on your mobile device. You may browse and search eBooks in Safari Tech Books Online by navigating to the Books & Reading section of the Lone Star College - University Park Library website. Select "E-Libro Premium" from the list. If you are attempting to access the database from an off-campus location, you will need to sign in using your student ID and password.
For offline reading, it is recommended that you use the Bluefire Reader, available for download from iTunes and Google Play. Ebrary has published detailed step-by-step instructions on how to navigate this process.
E-Libro Premium allows you to download eBook chapters as PDF files. You can transfer the PDF to your Kindle using Amazon's Send To Kindle software. You can also transfer an entire downloaded eBook to your Kindle, but this process requires a few extra steps.
The first step in this process is to sign up for a user account in the E-Libro Premium database. You will also need an Adobe ID.
