1. How can I rent eBooks? What are the pricing options and for what periods can I rent?

You can rent eBooks through the Fairchild Books bookstore on Bloomsbury Fashion Central. From the Fairchild Books bookstore page, you can search or browse to find the book you need. Please visit the particular book’s webpage on Bloomsbury Fashion Central and select the rental period that interests you in the rental module located on the right hand side of the page. You can rent a title for 6 months or 12 months.

2. How can I search titles to rent or purchase?

When logged into your account, the search bar can be accessed by clicking on the Fairchild Books Store icon towards the top of your homepage as in the image below.

3. What is the difference between renting and purchasing an eBook?

Buying a perpetual eBook license entitles you to permanent access of that book in the form of an Adobe Digital Editions-compatible PDF file with no expiration date. Buying an eBook rental will limit your time to access the eBook to the term purchased (either 6 months or 12 months). 

4. Where are my eBooks located?

Your rented or purchased eBooks can be found on the homepage and seen when you are logged into your personal account.
