Downloading Ebooks from Ebook Central

When you click to download a full book, highlight, or annotate pages, you will be prompted to log in with your OWU credentials (the same username and password you use to access myOWU and Blackboard). This will automatically create an account for you within EBC. With that account you can create bookshelves and notes, and be able to access that account off-campus just by logging in.
