About eBooks

Bond University Library has over 300,000 eBooks available to students and staff.Ebook illustration

The eBook collection covers a range of disciplines as well as general interest topics.

This guide covers the basics of finding, printing, copying and downloading eBooks. It includes instructions for using our main eBook provider Proquest Ebook Central.

Using a Bond student computer 

An eBook can only be read online, not downloaded. The software required to read eBooks offline (Adobe Digital Editions) is not available on Bond student computers.

Off campus or using your own device on campus

Before you can access the book, you will be prompted to log in using your Bond network user name and password.

 Please note: To access Proquest Ebook Central on and off campus, you will need to login in using your Bond University student or staff username and password.

eBooks and digital rights management (DRM)

Digital Rights Management (DRM) systems prevent the unauthorised use and copying of digital resources. While a large number of the library's eBooks are protected by DRM, these terms of access are set by the eBook vendor, author or publisher - not the library.

The most common form of DRM for eBooks is Adobe DRM. Ebooks on third party aggregators (such as Proquest Ebook Central and ebrary) are protected by Adobe DRM, which monitors and limits printing and copying/pasting allowances.
