Bluefire Reader App (Install on your Apple, Android or Kindle Fire device)
An Adobe ID
An EBSCO account
You will only need to authorize the app once. After that, just tap Download to download and read an eBook on your device.
The first time you download a book, you will be prompted to create an EBSCO account. Click the "Sign In" link.
If you see the message Sorry, this eBook is in use, all the copies are checked out, or all the licenses are in use.
You can try again later when the ebook is not being used, or put a hold on it to download it when it's returned. Sign in/Create Account to put a hold on it. You'll get an email notification when it's ready to download.
If you have an account already, just sign in, if not,
click on "Create one now."
Choose the download format if given an option (both not always available). Choose PDF if you will be citing it and want fixed page numbers, or EPUB if using a mobile device. The EPUB version is optimized for viewing on devices, and automatically resizes to fit your screen.
Then check the box to confirm that the Bluefire app is installed and Download.
Open in Bluefire Reader or on some devices Open in EBSCO eBooks

Books with an expired loan period will still show up in the Bluefire app on your device, but can't be opened. Tap the trash can icon, click the red circle dash, and Delete. Or on some devices, tap the book cover and hit Delete to get rid of it.
Click on Settings, which is the gear icon next to the trash can to choose either cover view or list view.
