Q. How can I read this e-book on my iPad or Android device?


You may use your iPad or Android device to read our e-books online via the UTSA Libraries website. 

For off-line use, if chapters in an e-book are available as PDFs, they may be downloaded to your device in iBooks,  BlueFire Reader, or a variety of PDF-reader apps available from the App Store or Google Play.

For some of our databases, you will be prompted to install the free BlueFire Reader app, available in the iTunes store or Google Play. These e-books are downloaded only for a limited period of time, but may be downloaded again after expiration. 

The BlueFire Reader app is third-party software and is not fully integrated with the UTSA Libraries website.  You are able to read downloaded UTSA e-books, but can’t create reading lists or access UTSA databases in the BlueFire Reader app.
