How to download items from the WHDL

The number and types of files available for each resource will differ depending on many variables such as author permissions and types of available files. The most common file types are PDF, epub, prc, and various media formats like mp3 and jpg. In order to download these resources, just right-click on the link to the file you want, and save it to your computer.

Because there is no limit to the kinds of files the WHDL will accept, you will need to know how to access the files you save. Because the majority of the file types you will see here are common, you will not likely have too much trouble using them. However, some file types--such as ebook files labeled with .prc or .epub--will require you to know how to use them. Because these two file types are ebooks, if you do not know how to load those into your e-reading device, you will need to check with the manufacturer of your device for instructions on how to do that.
