Reading e-books – a manual for members of the FH Aachen


When you hear the library staff talking about e-books (electronic books), you should be aware that we refer to a variety of formats which are scattered across a handful of sites by different providers, that offer different means of access and require different technical premises.  However, all of them have some important aspects in common:

·         They are bibliographically recorded in the catalogue PLUS.

·         You can use them free of charge and if you are a member of the FH Aachen either on campus or at home or even on-the-go.

Read the manual for the operation system or device you plan to read on and do not hesitate to contact us should difficulties occur:
