Ebooks are provided from a variety of vendors and publishers so downloading methods and policies will vary.

Chapters from books on the Cambridge Books Online, Cambridge Companions Online, Oxford Scholarship Online, SpringerLink and Wiley platforms can be downloaded in PDF format to e-readers including the Kindle.

Dawsonera - All ebooks can be downloaded to PC, Mac, laptop, memory stick, Android or iOS mobile device. You can choose whether to download these for 1 day or 2 days. They cannot be downloaded to Kindle. Further details for downloading to Android and iOS devices are available from this blogpost.

Ebrary has a large number of e-books, and there is information on how to access them here.

 MyiLibrary - Some ebooks can be downloaded for 3 days to PC, laptop, Sony ereader, Nook, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android devices, but not Kindle. See help with downloading from MyiLibrary, including a list of downloadable titles, or watch our YouTube video on downloading MyiLibrary ebooks.

Ebooks on some other platforms can't be downloaded although it is possible to print or copy material within normal copyright restrictions (1 chapter or 5% of extracts). 

You can also use Calibre to convert PDFs to EPUBs for more user-friendly reading on your device.
