Notes on Usage of the Following Materials

To download any of the materials from the resources below, patrons will need a personal computer or laptop. Although a library patron can sign-up for any of these resources on a Clarke Library computer, downloads can only be made onto a personal device.

Each of the resources below is from a different company and has its own rules and specific means of access. These instructions will help patrons get started; but if further assistance is needed with a particular resource or with a patron's personal e-reader, please contact the technical support for the resource or for the e-reader in question. The library is always happy to help patrons get started, but only the technical support for each product or each device has the expertise to help patrons beyond this point.

Please note: the library is not responsible for any device a patron purchases to access the library's electronic materials. Should a patron purchase e-reader hardware or software, the library will not be responsible for costs associated for such a purchase. The library is only responsible for the materials that it provides. Clarke Library is not associated with nor responsible for commercial parties.
