Can I download ebooks?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff & students

Most ebooks can be downloaded in part or full, either temporarily (for a maximum of 3 days) or permanently. However, some ebooks cannot. Often this is because they are in high demand or because of technical or publisher restrictions.

See our Ebook functionality guide for more details about individual publishers/platforms.
