The library has purchased over 200 000 e-books covering various fields of study. The library buys e-books from various providers either as large e-book sets or as single e-books. The user rights, ways of using, loan periods and e-book readers required therefore vary. Whereas some e-books can be read by multiple users at the same time, for example, some can be read only by one person at a time.
Single e-books and links to them can best be found via Janet Finna.

The library acquires course books as e-books if they are available via Jamk's e-book suppliers, and if the e-book cost is reasonable. You can make an acquisition request with form or send an email to kirjasto.ekirjat (a) jamk.fi
Most e-books can be read online in a browser, which requires no separate e-book reader. Some e-books can be downloaded to your device. Install a free reader on your device before downloading e-books.
If you want to read an e-book on more than one device, you must authorize the Adobe Digital Editions reader with an Adobe ID. After authorization, you can transfer the e-book file from one device to another and open it with your Adobe ID on different devices.
By default, the e-book file is saved in the “My Digital Editions folder”.
Adobe Digital Editions can be de-authorized by using the key combination ctrl+shift+d. On Mac devices use command+shift+d.
Jamk University of Applied Sciences campus computers have Adobe Digital Editions pre-installed.
NB! Do not download e-books remotely with Citrix (remote.jamk.fi). The e-book is downloaded to the server instead of your own device and is no longer reopenable.
If you want to download an e-book for offline use, you must:
1. Install Adobe Digital Editions e-book reader
2. Authorize Adobe Digital Editions:
You can use most of Jamk Library’s e-books and databases via Janet Finna at home or on the road (HAKA-login). Log into Janet Finna using your personal Jamk ID .
You can read e-books on your PC, tablet, e-reader, or smart phone. Some of the e-books can be downloaded for off-line reading. Depending on the e-book service and your device, you may need to download some free software before you can read the e-books.
