Clicking on the title of an EBSCO ebook in either Library Search or from the Catalogue will take you to the ebook details page on the EBSCO mobile site (this isn't something we can change, it's EBSCO's site that decides to show you the mobile version) .

The mobile site won't allow you to view books online, but if you switch to the full site you can proceed using the iPad instuctions below.

To switch to the full site, scroll to the bottom of the page and follow the Full site link:

Please note that making this change will not preserve the page you were viewing, you will have to search for the ebook again using the search form on the full site home page.
