Unfortunately, our eBooks are not Kindle compatible (they use an encrypted ePub, the Kindle uses Mobi [amongst others]).  Due to the Digital Rights Management [DRM] system , it is not possible to legitimately download and convert eBooks into a Kindle supported format. The recommended way to read said ebooks is through Adobe Digital Editions. You can however, "print" up to 60 pages of a book to a PDF from the EBSCO website, and that PDF can be read on a Kindle.

However, this applies only to eBooks through EBSCO. A lot of our resources allows you to download and save articles (and some book chapters) in full as PDF formats, which are Kindle compatible. Some allow for HTML and text downloads, which can be read on the Kindle or converted to read on the Kindle. Also, sources of public domain ebooks, such as the ones on Project Gutenberg, often include a mobi/Kindle version without any need for conversion.
