EBSCO eBook Display Issues

Some web browsers are known to have a hard time recognizing script components in certain eBooks. Because of this, you will need to go through a "load unsafe scripts" protocol. Screen casts are available that illustrate the correct protocol to correct this issue in FirefoxChrome and Internet Explorer browsers.

Additional Tools

The tool bar on the right side of the screen gives you many additional options.   For a full explanation of each of these, go to EBSCO Help (link below).
