Why is my download not showing up as a zip file?

It may be possible that your account is set to download a different file format. To change the download format of files, please do the following:

  1. Log in to your UK education collection account.
  2. Select the My Account link.
  3. Select the Preferences link.

Under the Preferences screen you will see the following choices under Download Preferences:

DAISY File Extension Type.

If the setting is set to .zip, your preference is set to download books as a Daisy zip file.

This is the most common file format used. Users who wish to download a Daisy file will need to unzip the file to read the books.
