Global Accountancy Digital Library(GADL) using Adobe Digital Editions software 

"Global Accountancy  Digital Library(GACDL)” is fundamentally a resource that reconstructs the intellectual substance and services of a traditional library in digital form.
Digital libraries are not replacements for traditional libraries. They are rather the future of traditional libraries, much as medieval manuscript libraries simply became a specialized and much revered part of the larger print-based libraries that we have today (Seadle, 2006).
 
Students want choice, flexibility, and ease — to buy or borrow books and read them on their preferred reading devices. Global Accountancy  Digital Library(GADL) using Adobe Digital Editions software offers an engaging way to view and manage media rich eBooks and other digital publications. Use it to download and purchase digital content, which can be read both online and offline. Transfer copy-protected eBooks from your personal computer to other computers or devices.
