Programs for reading e-books

If you download e-books from our library to read offline, please make sure that you have the correct software to read them on your laptop or smartphone. As for the start of August, our e-books for download are now largely in ACSM format, which cannot be read by Adobe Acrobat. (This does not affect viewing e-books online).

You can use the following free readers to read downloaded ACSM format e-books:

Windows/Mac users can download Adobe Digital Editions (http://www.adobe.com/uk/products/digital-editions/download.html)

For smartphones, there are several options. VLE Books provide details of VLEBooks eBook reader for iOS (https://www.vlebooks.com/vleweb/Help/iOSHelp) and Android (https://www.vlebooks.com/vleweb/Help/AndroidHelp)

The Bluefire Reader (http://www.bluefirereader.com/bluefire-reader.html) is also available for iOS, Android and Windows.

If you are still having problems, please contact library.technical@beds.ac.uk, so we can be aware of any problems
