On most android devices, you have several choices for web browsers. I recommend IE for using the library databases, but other browsers may work as well.

You will need to download a PDF reader to use the ebooks. I recommend Bluefire reader in the Google Play store. It works very nicely with EBSCO ebooks.

Once you have the reader installed, go to EBSCO ebooks. You can search by title or subject. Just type in your keywords.  Even though we are in the ebook collection, you may get journal articles in your list as well. You can click the button Refine Results  or Select Sources and change it to only ebooks.

Click on the book that you would like to view. This will give you all the citation information ( for your Works Cited or References page). There will also be a link on the left to download so that you can view it offline.

When you click on Download, you will be prompted to create an account. You only need to provice your email address (SEU) and your username. Then the book will be "checked out" to you for 7 - 14 days. The library has no control over this - sorry we can't extend the checkout time.

Once you have downloaded the book, you will be prompted to select an ereader - Bluefire should be one of your options if you have installed it. You can immediately view it, highlight and take notes. The table of Contents in the book is usually clickable, so you can jump to the chapter you are most interested in.

Bluefire also offers a video tutorial.
