Trykt eller digital bog?

Ud over trykte bøger tilbyder vi tre forskellige typer af digitale bøger:

 

Vital Source Bookshelf: En velfungerende ebogsplatform, hvor bogen downloades til din computer og/eller mobile enhed.

 

Du skal bruge den gratis Bookshelf software til at læse læse bøgerne - der er indbygget gode værktøjer til f.eks. søgning, overstregning, notetagning mv. I langt de fleste tilfælde vil du samtidig have en sideløbende 1825 dages online adgang. Læs mere om Vital Source bøger

 

Levering: I forbindelse med købet opretter du et login. Når du har installeret Bookshelf softwaren, logger du blot ind og din bog downloades automatisk.

 

 

Adobe ebog: Dette er Adobe DRM ebøger som downloades til din lokale computer eller mobil enhed.

 

For at læse bøgerne kræves særlig software, som understøtter denne type. Softwaren er gratis, men du bør sikre at du har rettigheder til installere software på den maskine du påtænker at anvende den på. Læs mere om Adobe DRM bøger
