E-Books & E-Readers from IMO Publishing
After ordering and paying for your your E-Book(s) and/or E-Reader(s), IMRF Bookshop places your order at IMO Publishing.
IMO Publishing will make the e-book/e-reader titles available and will let the IMRF and you know.
The IMRF Bookshop will then set up an e-book account on your behalf at the IMO Publishing website, and send you the log-in details and instructions on how to get to your E-Books/E-Reader. Please note that the e-books come either in E-Book (PDF) or E-Reader (EBK) format (more about this below).
Can't find your confirmation e-mail with the log-in credentials and instructions? You can access your account at http://vp.imo.org (new window).
If you can remember your log-in details, click on "reset password" or "reset username" and follow the instructions.
Below you will find the PDF instructions of how to download and use PDF or EBK files (the E-Books and E-Readers).
The E-Book Comes as an PDF File
An E-Book can be downloaded as a PDF from your IMO Publishing account directly to your computer. You may have to fill in a purchase code, which can be found in your IMO Publishing Account. You get 2 "copies" to download on different devices if you wish, or use the second "copy" as a spare in case something happens to your computer.
If you wish more than two copies, you need to purchase the e-book again.
An e-book works on a Windows Computer, a Mac Computer, and many hand devices (providing it has a "pdf reader" installed on it).
The E-Reader Comes as an EBK File
An e-reader (EBK) can only be read through the IMO Bookshelf Software (new window), also downloadable from your IMO Publishing account.
No other software is needed to use your E-Reader on a Windows computer.
For a Mac Computer it is best to use a "Windows Emulator".
Please visit the Apple.com: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1837?locale=en_US (new window). After you have installed the Boot Camp (Windows Emulator), you should be able to install and use the IMO Bookshelf software, and download the E-Reader.
For instructions on how to use the Boot Camp Software and other similar Windows Emulators, please go to Youtube and search for "Boot Camp Software Mac".
