Today we are going to learn how students, teachers and librarians can access eBooks, from the School eBook Library for viewing on a personal computer. To get started, you will need A computer or laptop An internet connection or data service And an eLibrary card for the School eBook Library During this tutorial I will be using the Chrome browser, but these steps will work for all major browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari. Let’s begin: If your school gave you a direct link to the library, please skip this part of the tutorial, otherwise open a browser and type into your search bar. Now select Sign In.
