Changes to Ebrary authentication: Bookshelf information

Please note that the Ebrary e-books supplier will be moving to Shibboleth authentication on June 22nd. You should then use your Aston University username and password to access the database, as Athens passwords will no longer be recognised after this date.

If you have saved items to your personal bookshelf and wish to transfer them to your new log-in account please follow the instructions below:

  1. Make sure that you save your Athens login in a safe place before the Shibboleth migration. This can be found by copying your login name as displayed in the banner. An example would be athens_1c5sdfghbhesd6.
  2. After the Shibboleth migration date, log into ebrary again with your Shibboleth credentials. You will see a different login name.
  3. Contact ebrary Customer Support via email with both login names support@ebrary.com
  4. If you have any additional questions, please contact support@ebrary.com
These instructions can also be found under the Bookshelf Migration Button in the top right hand of the ebrary homepage screen.

If you have any concerns about this, please comment on this post or contact lis-enquiries@aston.ac.uk
