Creating an ebrary eBook Account

Creating an ebrary or eBook account seems difficult but in truth it’s very easy. You can find a link to this page from the Library’s homepage under Research Tools. Outside the College you will be asked for your 14 digit barcode.

Click on Sign In and create a new account.

OK, next step, complete the form. Ebrary is not fussy about user names, emails, or passwords but to make life easier; use your real name, your Bank Street email address, and make an easy password to remember.

You have now created an ebrary – eBook account, bravo!
step4-ebooks
Now, you are all set to read and make the most of what eBooks have to offer. In a nutshell, making an account:

  • Provides a better reading experience
  • Lets you place eBooks in folders and on bookshelves
  • Allows you to annotate
  • And print 60 (sometime more) pages.

There are also options to download entire books onto the device of your choice for 14 days (you’ll need Adobe Digital Editions – it’s free, and an Adobe ID also free). Still having problems signing up – see Peter or Maureen at the reference desk or search Jackie’s eBook Research Guide.
