eBook & eAudiobook Help

May contain: page, text, computer, and electronics

RSA has two different eBook & eAudioBook vendors integrated into RSAcat, OverDrive and Baker & Taylor.  If you have ever downloaded an eBook from Alliance Digital Media Library (ADML) site, you have used OverDrive.  If you have ever downloaded an eBook for the eRead Illinois site, you have used Baker & Taylor.

May contain: blackboard and text

To start using eBooks, you will need to first setup your computer/devices and possibly sign up with the vendor on their site.  This allows your eBook account to syncronize between RSA's servers and the eBook vendors servers.  If you have an existing account created via ADML or eRead Illinois, that account for that vendor is already setup.

To create an account with ADML (OverDrive):

To create an account with eRead Illinois (Baker & Taylor):

  • First go to the eRead Illinois page and choose your library from the drop-down list.
  • Click the Login link in the uppper right hand corner of the eRead Illinois page for your library.  You will be asked for your library card ID (starts with a D) and your RSAcat PIN/Password.
  • Now click the My Account link at the top center of the page.  From this screen, you will need to fill in your Display name, email address (where hold available notifications will be sent) and Blio Account and Bilo Password.  The Blio account and password will be used in your Blio apps to download eBooks you've checked out in that format.
  • Once you return to the main eRead Illinois page, you can click the "App Zone" link in the dark gray menu bar (just below the picture of the state of Illinois).  The App Zone contains help documents, links to various device app downloads or other help from Baker & Taylor.
