Do I have to check out eBooks to read them?

Many eBooks do not need to be checked out, meaning everyone can read them at the same time—at school, home, or anywhere you have access to the Internet. Other eBooks can only be read by a certain number of students at one time.

How do I download an eBook to my device such as a tablet or smartphone?

Once a title is checked out to you, you can easily download it to your device for offline reading inside the app. Look for the Download button next to each title in your list of checkouts.

Download the Mackin app to read on any device

The MackinVIA Reader is a cross-platform application that allows you to read Mackin-hosted eBooks and Audiobooks in MackinVIA. Besides flipping pages in the Reader, you can view a linked table of contents and page thumbnails, access eBook information, bookmark pages, search through the text, write notes, cite sources, access a dictionary, zoom in/out, change the page view, pan around the page and close the eBook when you’re finished.
