Download the DMG installer

Double click to open the DMG file.  Then drag and drop the application onto the Applications folder to install.

Authorise the App

When you open the app for the first time, you will be asked to authorise the reader so you can see your books.  You will need your School Email address and Bobby Pin (4 digit code).

Note, your Bobby Pin was emailed to you and is always available on the school ebook portal next to your name.

Allow your MacOS keychain to look after the credentials.
