Ask a Librarian


I have just bought a NOOK ebook and would like to checkout ebooks from the library and read them on my NOOK. Is that possible?

10/3/2011 update to this question / answer. NetLibrary has become eBooks on EBSCOHost. The new platform as implemented at UNC-CH does not currently have a download feature.

It appears that PDFs can be transferred to a NOOK and MD Consult textbook chapters have PDF downloads, so you may want to try those.

6/10/2010 The Nook e-book readers are compatible with at least one collection of e-books that the library makes available to its users.  Here is a statement from the OCLC about their compatibility:

OCLC NetLibrary, the leading provider of eContent solutions for libraries, currently offers more than 140,000 PDF titles that are compatible with the Barnes & Noble nook, Sony’s Daily Edition and other devices including all four Sony Digital Readers (PRS-300, 505, 600 and 700BC), as well as the COOL-ER. Titles available in the NetLibrary catalog include current bestsellers, award-winners and timeless classics, and cover subject categories ranging from fiction to business to personal growth and more.OCLC NetLibrary uses the Adobe Content Server to provide offline eReader capability to library users. Adobe Content Server is integrated with the OCLC NetLibrary platform to offer users seamless offline access to the library’s existing NetLibrary collections, providing library users a single point of access to eBook content for online and offline use. Users who have established a NetLibrary account can log in, download selected titles to their computers, and transfer them to supported devices using Adobe Digital Editions. (
