For some time, we have had access to over 150,000 ebooks on the EBSCOhost platform. Some details about how to access these have changed recently, so here is an update to this earlier post.
The starting point remains the same: You can search for them here, or in the library catalog, or if you do a Summon search and one of these more than 157,000 books has content connected to your search term, Summon will lead you to the book.
To read the book online (in a browser session on the EBSCOhost platform), you still need to create an account as described in the earlier post.
If you know you will want to download the book, you will (in addition to a personal account) also need Adobe Digital Editions (ADE).
Once you’ve found the book you want to read, sign in to your personal EBSCOhost account via the button on the top menu (screenshot below). Once you have logged in to your account, click the Download button and it will ask you to confirm you want to “check the book out for seven days.” Click yes and the book will be downloaded in a format compatible with ADE. After each period of seven days you will be able to renew the book. If you do not renew, the e-book will disappear from your device(s).
If you encounter any problems with this or any online library resource, please contact email@example.com
Next time you click on a “Full text online” link in Summon that looks like thisyou may see a screen that looks like thisAny reasonable person would suspect something is terribly wrong. The fact is that, somewhat unfortunately, a link that says “Click this link to display full-text in a new window” no longer displays in the big empty spot. Instead, there is now a very small link at the bottom of the narrow frame on the right that says “Open content in a new tab.” (additional screenshot below) If you click that link, you will (hopefully) see the journal article you are looking for.
We’re sorry for this inconvenience. We and other libraries are working with our third-party vendor to improve the situation.
