ProQuest Ebook Central is the new user-friendly e-book platform that replaces the EBL platform. All EBL e-books are now available on this platform and can be accessed as usual from the Library website with your GUID and password.

EBLBlog5

Some of the improved features of the platform include:

  • Ability to download a section of the e-book as a PDF which can be kept, printed and copied from with no restrictions.
  • Ability to print or copy a certain amount from the downloaded e-book, on top of the print and copy allowances that can be used in the Online Reader.
  • Clear and intuitive instructions for downloading the e-book to different devices.
  • Better support for mobile devices via a responsive web design that optimizes heavily used features such as search and download on tablets and smartphones.

Your bookshelf, annotations, and current downloads from the old EBL platform should all be available through Proquest Ebook Central.

You can find training videos explaining how to use the new platform here. You can also view the Proqeust Ebook Central help pages here.
