There are varying instructions for the different types of eBooks. Ensure you follow the specific instructions.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ONLINE INTERACTIVE EBOOKS

Online Interactive eBooks are accessed via the publisher's portal, using unique activation codes. They are accessible online, while some may be available to access both online and offline.

To activate your Interactive eBooks, you will need to log in to your Educational Ebooks account. You will be provided with detailed instructions and links that will direct you to the publisher's portal. If you have not created an account with the publisher already, you will be prompted to do so.

Establishing your accounts with the publisher and linking them to Educational Ebooks will activate Single Sign On (SSO). In future you will only need to sign into your Educational Ebooks account to access your eBooks.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROTECTED PDF EBOOKS

Protected PDF eBooks are static versions of the original book with the same layout and visual formatting. Protected PDF eBooks have limitations on printing, copying and sharing. These eBooks usually have an expiry. These settings are determined by the publisher.

Your Protected PDF eBook is always accessible online through your Educational Ebooks account (when connected to the internet) and available offline on one supported device.

For offline access you must be connected to the internet to initially download your eBook via the Educational Ebooks App. Once it has been downloaded, your eBook will be accessible offline.

To access your Protected PDF eBook offline, select your device below and follow the instructions.
