As of last week, eBooks are downloadable from the EBSCOhost mobile site! This means you can now find eBooks to view offline on your mobile device. You do not need to do anything special to get to the EBSCOhost mobile site. (EBSCOHost automatically detects mobile devices and redirects to their mobile site. The iPad displays the full version.)

All you need to do to take advantage of this is visit the library's homepage from your phone, where you will be directed to our mobile site. From there, simply click on "Research Databases" to view all of our mobile friendly databases, and you will find the EBSCOhost eBook collection listed here. Note: You will still be prompted to log in with your HIU username and password to access content.

Accessing the Library Mobile Site
If for some reason, you are not redirected to the library's mobile site and the full site displays, there is a link to our mobile version in the footer of every page of our site.
