Can I use an eReader or Tablet to read UC Irvine Library eBooks?
Using a UC Irvine Library eBook on your device depends on a number of factors.
- What format is the eBook available in? Is it .TXT, .PDF or ePub. Also be aware of what you can download; is it a chapter, a selection, or the whole book.
- What format(s) does your device accept?
- If the book isn't in the correct format for your device, can it be converted using one of the eBook conversion applications that are available (check the Apps & Software tab for examples).
If the eBook is in the correct format (or can be converted to the correct format) for your device then there is a good chance that you will be able to transfer it to your device. Check your user guide more information.
