This guide introduces the Seminary student to the resources available in and through the Morgan Library-Learning Center

Authorizing Your Computer

How do I authorize my computer or device to read an ebook from the Theological Libraries Ebook Lending Project?

The first time you launch Adobe Digital Editions on your computer, or Bluefire Reader on your mobile device, you will be prompted to authorize your computer or device with an Adobe ID.  If you don't already have an Adobe ID, register for free here.  You will then be able to enter your Adobe ID into Adobe Digital Editions or the Bluefire Reader.

Computer/Device to Use

What device can I use to read an ebook -- my personal laptop, my desktop computer, my tablet, or my phone?

You can read an ebook on any personal device in any combination of up to 6 computers or devices.  The only requirement is to download and authorize the appropriate reader software. You won't be able to download an ebook to a public computer, but you can read it online.

Borrowing an ebook

How do I borrow an ebook from the Theological Libraries Ebook Lending Project?

If you find an ebook that is in the Theological Libraries Ebook Lending Project database, you can click on the Borrow button to "check out" the book from the electronic library.
