The Library has two eBook collections, Axis360 and EbscoHost, which feature a range of academic and for-fun books designed to complement Kishwaukee’s print collection.
With Axis360 users can download up to 3 eBooks at a time. Each item will be checked out for 7 days and cannot be returned early. When a title’s checkout period expires, it will automatically become inactive on your reading device(s) and be available to others for check out. Click on this link for detailed instructions on how to register and use Axis360 & Blio.
To check out books, click “Login” and enter the following information:
* Library Card ID = the letters “kc” plus your complete seven-digit Kish ID number, including any zeros at the beginning (e.g., kc9999999)
* PIN = your last name, all lowercase (e.g., anderson)
Download the Blio reader app to use Axis360 e-books. There is also a link to the app within Axis360.
