EBL & Ebrary join Ebook Central

Ebook platforms are joined together

Between 12 and 14 September the e-book platforms EBL and Ebrary will be merging with Ebook Central. What does this mean for you as Utrecht University student or staff member?

EBL

In the night of 12 September EBL migrated to Ebook Central. You will be automatically redirected to Ebook Central. When logging in, you will notice that the interface has changed. Your account information and bookshelf are automatically imported from EBL to Ebook Central. You still use your Solis ID to get access, whether you use a Utrecht University network or log in from other locations.

Ebrary

In the night of 13 September also Ebrary joins Ebook Central. To read e-books from this platform you log in with your Solis ID and password, whether you use a Utrecht University network or log in from other locations.

Your Ebrary account and bookshelf are not automatically migrated to Ebook Central. As of 14 September you must import your Ebrary bookshelf into Ebook Central. First log in to Ebook Central with your Solis ID and password. Next go to the Bookshelf and click on 'Move your ebrary bookshelf'.  Enter the old data of your Ebrary account and your Ebrary bookshelf will be added to Ebook Central.

 At the moment there are no problems with the import on campus, but off campus there are still some issues with importing the Ebrary bookshelf. We are working on a solution.
