EBSCO e-books can be read online on your computer or laptop or you can read them using the Ebsco e-book app on a tablet or other mobile device. Please note that many EBSCO e-books are single user e-books, so if someone else is using one, you won't be able to access it yourself until the other person is finished with it.
