Program installations needed for e-books

Some e-books can be read online in the browser. Some require program installations in order to work. You may also need these installations to your device if you want to download e-books.

By installing these free programs and getting the ADOBE ID account, you make sure that your computer or your mobile device is ready for the use of e-books. If you want to download Ellibs or Ebook Central e-books to your device, you also need to create your own personal account to those services.
