As of May 2018, EBSCO has retired their EBSCO eBooks mobile app. EBSCO now recommends using the Bluefire Reader app or any other app supported by Adobe Digital Editions. Please view these instructions on how to install the free Bluefire Reader app on your mobile device to download and read eBooks.

With EPUB files becoming increasingly advanced, EBSCO has invested in this format to provide a robust online and mobile experience. EPUB allows for reflowable text, display modification and increased compatibility with screen readers, so we are confident that the future of EPUB will provide the best user experience for our users. Since the current EBSCO eBooks app is not compatible with this advanced functionality, we have decided to re-evaluate our mobile offering.
