Hi Duc

The Librarian running this course was called away but when she comes back and runs the classes for this workshop I am sure she will be including how to download from OverDrive.

Hi Duc,

 

Yes, I'll be showing how to download from OverDrive and other ebook providers that we subscribe to.

Hi Helen,

I have a Kobo e-reader. Have you heard of it, and do you think I can use the library resources with it? Thanks so much.

Hi Darien,

The Kobo does work with some of our ebook providers which allow you to download files in epub and PDF formats. The PDF reader isn't fantastic on the Kobo ereader last time I checked, but it does work. Happy to show you more in the workshop, or email me if you have a specific question: Helen.Chan@uts.edu.au.

Cheers,

Helen Chan

Thanks a lot Helen,
