These instructions are for the 2.0 edition of Adobe Digital Editions. Click here for instructions for the old version of Adobe Digital Editions.

Please note that if you deauthorize your computer and/or reader, you will lose access to any content with Digital Rights Management (such as Library2Go materials) that was downloaded using that authorization. If you still have the Library2Go books checked out, you can re-download them after reauthorizing by logging in to Library2Go, clicking on My Checkouts, and then on the Download button next to the titles you wish to re-download.
