Nearly all of the eBooks from NetLibrary are formatted as PDF or HTML files. NetLibrary eBooks in PDF format are not compatible with Macs unless a third-party application is also used.
If you are unable to view an electronic book, you may want to use the Shubert|it PDF Browser Plugin rather than Adobe Acrobat with NetLibrary. This is a third-party plugin that supports in-browser viewing of PDF files.
NOTE: Shuber|it is a free plug in for 'educational' use. At the prompt for a registration key, select the option for personal or educational use only.
The PDF files used by NetLibrary are compatible with the Mozilla, Firefox, Camino, Opera, Netscape, and Internet Explorer web browsers using the Schubert|it PDF Browser Plugin.
