When reading a book in ebrary, there is a menu above the content area with options for Full Download, Chapter Download, Copy, and Print to PDF.
Full Download downloads the entire book to your computer or device. This requires you to have an ebrary account, which is free to Butler users. You must also have a special pdf reader program (Adobe Digital Editions), which can be downloaded here. Any books you download will be subject to a loan period.
Chapter Download opens a box called Print to PDF. There are three options in this box; clicking Chapter Download automatically selects the option for Current Chapter. The download will have a citation at the bottom of each page; you can change the citation style using the drop-down menu in the box. Click Continue to download the chapter as a pdf, which you can then save to your computer or print.
Copy pulls up the text of the current page or any highlighted text in a pop-up box and gives the directions Press Control-C to copy. This can then be pasted into Word or into another kind of document.
Print to PDF opens the same box as Chapter Download. Clicking on this option automatically selects the option for Current Page. You may change the option to Page Range and type in the selection you would like to print. Just like when using Chapter Download, this opens a pdf that you can save to your computer or print.
**Because of copyright and fair use laws, ebrary limits the amount of pages you can print or copy. Each book has a different amount of pages available, and that number is displayed on the book's page and when you go to download/print/copy pages. Both the Chapter Download option and the Print to PDF option pull from the pages available to print limit. The Copy option takes away from the pages available to copy.
Clicking Full Download on a book's page will let you download the entire book and read it on your device. You must download the Bluefire Reader app in order to do this.
When you click Full Download, you will be given an option to choose what device you are using. Choose iOS, then tap continue. You will be prompted to get the Bluefire Reader app. If you already have the app, you can push Done with this step. Finally, you will be prompted to download your book.
The book will be added to your library in the Bluefire Reader app. You will have access to the book for a limited time depending on the loan period. When reading a book in Bluefire Reader, you can bookmark a page and add notes to it.
You can tap the Info tab in the menu above the content area to see a book's expiration date and to return the item if you finish with it before the due date.
