Use MP3 format instead... - does not matter (you are not transferring to MP3), but No is best.
Check Out a Book
In Media Manager, click the Browse for a title online! bar (black, upper right). This will open the OneClick website, where all checkouts are holds are placed. You will be logged in automatically.
Search or browse for a book. Our favorite way:
Go to Browse.
Click on either "All eAudio Titles" or "Genre" (and pick a subject) to start.
When the search pulls up, click on "Refine Search" (white bar at left).
In the refine bar, find "Availability" and check "Available." The search will refresh.
Every book with available copies will show. You can start looking through books now, or set more options like:
choose a genre (like mystery, romance) in the "Refine" box, if you did not start your search this way.
click on "Sort by" and switch that to Date Added. This puts the newest purchased books in your search first.
click on the "list view" button (small button with lines at upper right of book covers). This puts part of the summary next to the book cover, so you can see what they are about without clicking into each book.
When you have found a book, click the cover. The book's details are shown.
Use the Checkout Now button (if all copies are in use, the button is Hold). If your browser asks to download a file, click cancel.
Return to the Media Manager software. If your new checkout does not show yet, click the Refresh button.
Listen to a Book
click the Play button for the book. The book will begin
downloading to the computer, and start playing after a couple of
chapters are downloaded. The rest of the book will download as you
pause, skip, or stop the book using the playback
controls above the checked out list. The software will save your place
in the book automatically.
Early Return and Renew - there are controls buttons for each checked out book in Media Manager. If another person is waiting on a book, you will not be able to renew it (button will not be clickable).
Holds - on the website, click into My Titles (from either Browse or by clicking your name on the right). You can view your current holds, see what place you are in line (and how many copies the library owns) and remove any you no longer want. When it is your turn for a hold it is checked out to you automatically and the system will email you.
Need to update your account? When logged in, choose My Account (also under Browse or your name). You can update your email, change your password, and now even choose a different username.
