You will need special software to download & read ebooks that use Digital Rights Management (DRM) software, such as EBSCOhost and ProQuest Ebook Central. The ebook systems will prompt you to add this software at the point of your first download, but it will be more convenient if you set up your device in advance.
ProQuest Ebook Central
Only Kindle Fire is directly compatible with Adobe Digital Editions.
You can download ebooks that have print-to-PDF and chapter download capability on any device that supports .PDF file types – from Kindles and tablets to laptops and mobile devices. And you may transfer files between devices without support limitation.

eBook pages saved as a PDF can be transferred to, and read on eReader devices such as the Nook or Kindle. Consult your device's user manual for instructions on how to manually transfer files to the device.
