How to Borrow eBooks from an Online Library Including Genealogy Books

One very interesting development in the world of digitized books is the ability to borrow copyrighted, current books from online libraries. These collections of online eBooks are available almost everywhere in the U.S. This Quick View explains how you go about checking out a book online and downloading the borrowed book to your reading device, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or computer. If you have any suggestions for future Quick Views of Genealogy, let me know through a comment. Thanks for watching.


  1. Interesting topic. It would have been nice to be able to see the images more clearly. They all seem quite "fuzzy". Wondering if that is me and my computer or something with the images themselves.

    1. Its not you, it is a function of the size of the image, If I get higher quality, then the movies are too big to upload and if I choose a size that will work on mobile devices, the images look a little fuzzy. Sorry. I am working on it.
