ebrary contains around 40,000 full text books on many topics: Business & Economics, Computers, Technology & Engineering, Humanities, Life & Physical Sciences, Social & Behavioral Sciences.
Now for most titles users can download chapters or sections to PDF by using the new Download button. PDFs can then be transferred to an e-book reader, tablet, or other personal reading device.
Another new option is to download, or actually borrow, the complete document. Whole book downloads are sort of like an e-book checkout. These documents will be readable for 2 weeks via Adobe Digital Editions (plug in required) then they expire. Users can transfer downloaded documents directly to supported devices including Nook, and Sony Reader (but not Kindle). Additional software may be required for iPhone & iPad users (like Bluefire).
