Downloading MCC Library Ebooks: Welcome

All MCC Library ebooks can be read online or downloaded with an Internet connection.

To read an ebook where there is no Internet, first download it to your laptop, tablet or phone. Downloading instructions vary for each of MCC Library’s two ebook collections:

  •  eBook Central (from ProQuest)
  •  eBook Collection (from EBSCO)

See samples below to see the difference.

Note: Downloading any MCC Library ebook requires free Adobe Digital Editions software. Reading ebooks on a mobile device (phone or tablet) requires reader software such as Bluefire.
