Let’s begin: Connect your Sony device to your computer using the sync cable provided with your device. Your device will notify you when it is properly connected. If you are using a T1 reader, you will need to click Data Transfer Mode to proceed. Now, using your computer, open a web browser and navigate to the World Public Library website.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a specific book or resource, you can search for it using the “eBook finder tool.” Today I’m going to search for one of my personal favorites, “1984” by George Orwell. The eBook finder tool will help make author title and article suggestions based on the information entered in If you see something of interest, feel free to select it, if not, continue with your search. This brings us to the search results page which includes eBooks, articles and other resources.
