Ebooks Minnesota is an online ebook collection for all Minnesotans. The collection covers a wide variety of subjects for readers of all ages and features content from our state's independent publishers, as well as national and international publishers.
The collection is validated by IP ranges. There is no Digital Rights Management (DRM) required. We have permanent access to these titles, there is no limit in the number of titles checked out at any time, and readers can keep the title as long as they wish.
IP Address Authentication
Ebooks Minnesota uses geolocated IP authentication, so no sign-in authentication should be needed. The process works for the vast majority of Minnesota residents.
