Checkout a Book
Manual download can only use one type of audiobook file (Digital Rights-> Non Protected). Here is a
way to find a compatible book right now.
1. On the OneClick website, choose Advanced Search from Browse.
2. Set at least the first two:
a. All Digital Rights – Non-Protected
b. All Availability – Available
c. All Genre- can pick a subject (Mystery, Biography, etc) to narrow down to the type of
book you like from the start.
3. Click search. This will show you all books that are the correct format and available to check out
right now.
From here, you may wish to use these features:
o Sort By (above first book cover) switched to “Date Added” shows the newest added books first,
o
o
List View button (upper right of book covers, looks like black lines) to show the books with part
of their summary (so you do not have to click on each book to see what it is about),
Refine Search bar (far left) to narrow down your search further (if you did not set a genre or
other option initially).
When you find a book you want, click on the cover. Use the Checkout Now button to check out the
book.
Download a Book to the Computer
Internet Explorer on Windows 7 is used for this example. If you have Windows XP, some of these screens
may be slightly different (buttons on the left side instead of the top of the window).
1. Check out a book (or download a book already checked out from My Collections).
2. Your browser will want to know what to do with the zipped (compressed) book files. Choose to
“Save As” to your computer desktop, where it is easy to find.
3. The book will begin downloading, and will tell you when it is done. Click “Open.”
4. This will open a window showing the downloaded files. Click Extract All Files.
5. A Select a Destination and Extract Files box pops up. Since the original folder is on the desktop,
this will go to the same place. Click Extract.
6. A new window will open showing the uncompressed book files. These are the ones we can use.
Transfer a Book to an iPod
You may use any method you like to get the book files on the iPod through iTunes. Some people prefer
making a playlist of the book files, then move the playlist to the device. We have given instructions for
the easiest method with one book.

date. If another person is waiting on a book, you will not be able to renew it (button will not be
clickable).

(and how many copies the library owns) and remove any you no longer want. When it is your
turn for a hold it is checked out to you automatically and the system will email you.
