Passaic County Community College has over  2200 eBooks and the collection is growing.
This guide reviews how to locate, read and download  eBooks from the Library Catalog.
Most eBooks allow you to save / download / e-mail a section or chapter in pdf format. This is the only method available for the GALE eBooks and ABC-CLIO eBooks
EBSCOhost also allows you to download an entire eBook offline for a checkout period of  1-7 days.
To download to a desktop computer you will need to download Adobe Digital Editions. 
To download to a mobile device, you will need a separate app such as Bluefire reader or use the "save as PDF" format.
