Does it mean ADE doesn't have to be downloaded first to a computer before being able to download a book (just like what we tell patrons to do)?

Lauren said...

No computer is required. The app contains ADE within on the device. The will still need an ADE ID which when they install the app it will prompt them to create one or if they already have one to "Authorize" the device. Keep in mind, they need access to WiFi, either at home or the library or similar places like Starbucks or Mcdonalds. For the Nook Color and Tablets patrons who do NOT have wifi access they must use a computer with ADE on it.

My mom and I share our nook library. Is there anyway we can share our ADE library or will I have setup a separate ADE id for her nook? Thankd

You can have 6 devices on the same ADE. In order to share your Nook Library assign the same ADE ID to the Nook, computers (if using one) and any other eReaders you are using. If you need more than 6 devices, contact Adobe and ask them to increase your device limit. They will added additional 6.
