If an e-book is not working

Check that

  • You have updated the latest versions of the software.

If the e-book still doesn’t work

  • Check your internet connection.
  • Close the browser and start again from the beginning. Clear the browser history.
  • Open the link on Janet Finna. A link found by Google, for example, usually don't work.
  • Do you have several different programs and applications open on your computer? Close the unnecessary ones and try again.
  • Check which browsers are supported or recommended by the e-book service. 
  • See the detailed instructions on the e-book platform.
  • Some e-book services offer a separate application as well. You can try that, too.
  • See if other e-books on the same e-book service work. If they do, the problem concerns only this certain book. Contact the library:
