Going Mobile

What can you do on your iPad through the FHU Library?
 

What is Ebrary?

Ebrary is an eBook provider. It has FHU Library's largest collection of eBooks: over 70,000 academic titles, with more being added every day.
 

What does the app work on?

Mobile devices running iOS 4.3 or higher (iPhone, iPad, etc) or Android 2.1 or higher.

You can always use Ebrary on the web too.
 

About the Ebrary App

We understand most people would prefer use an eBook on an iPad instead of through a computer monitor. Thankfully Ebrary has an app that makes it super easy to use FHU's collection of Ebrary eBooks on a mobile device. With the Ebrary app you can check out books - usually for a period of two weeks - and download them directly to your device.
Pros:
• You can search for text across all your downloaded ebooks at once.
• It remembers your place within each book.
• You can copy and paste text from ebooks.
• Unlike physical library books, there's no fine if you forget to return an ebook - You just have to check it out again if you want it longer.
Cons:
• Some ebooks may not be available for download, though most are.
• There is a limit to the amount of text you can copy and paste.

There are three main stages to setting up the app:

1) Link Ebrary to a Facebook account
