    How many computers can I autorize with a single Adobe account?

    Librarian CSDHR

      As a librarian, I work in many schools. We slowly start to buy eBook for students with difficulties in learning. Often, books are protected by DRM: we have to use the same account to open the books that the one we use to buy it.

      For now, only one person will be allowed to buy eBooks (me), so we will only have one account... but each student have his own computer, so I will have to autorize each computer with the same account.

       

      1. Can I do that?

      2. If yes, how many computers can I autorize with a single Adobe account?

      3. If no, what else can I do?

       

      Thank you very much,

          (1)You can do that with (2) up to six devices total including your computer.

           

          (3) The only other thing is to try to contact Adobe to see what arrangements they can make.

          Alternatively, contact Overdrive, who are the service most libraries use for lending ADE DRM books,

          which is effecitvely what you want to do.

          I am afraid I can't give any idea of the best contact points for those oarganizations.

          Maybe some other public librarian will be able to point you in the right direction.
