Here are some important things you should know about using the Lexis Digital Library (LDL):
E-books in the Lexis Digital Library will come in either one of two formats: EPUB or PDF.
EPUB is typical for e-books, and can be read within the Overdrive/Lexis Digital Library platform (i.e., there is no additional software to download).
However, some titles will be in PDF format which cannot be read within the Lexis Digital Library platform. PDFs that are not protected by the publisher will open in new tab or window. Those PDFs secured by digital rights management (DRM) from the publisher will require a third-party software, such as Adobe Digital Editions, to view. NOTE: The NSCLL is merely suggesting Adobe Digital Editions; we do not endorse it over any other similar product.
