If you received notice via email from the provider of the title you can follow the link provided or you can log in to the eBook vendor app to check out your title.

Why am I receiving an error message in the catalog after I click the download button?

Error messages in the catalog mean there is something wrong with your account. Check to make sure you have an account with the vendor who supplies the title and that you are successfully logged into your My Account in the catalog. If both of those accounts are successfully logged in, please check with your library. You may have reached the limit on the number of titles borrowed or have fines associated with your library card that prevent you from borrowing downloadable titles.
