Accessing an EBL eBook

How do I access an eBook from EBL?

eBook Library (EBL) titles are available through OneSearch to all current UWA staff and students for free. To gain access to EBL titles on campus or from home you will need to log in using your Pheme username and password.

A title's availability as an eBook is indicated by an "Online Access" listing in the item details. Access the eBook by:

  • Clicking on the eBook Library (unlimited) link in the "View Online" tab in the individual items. The eBook will open in a new window.
  • Click on the "Read Online" button.  This will open the eBook.  
  • After the eBook has been open for a short time, you will be told that "your browsing time has elapsed".  
  • To continue reading the book, select "Yes (create a loan)".  You can then continue reading the book. Most titles are available for 1 or 7 day loans; many titles are available for 1-28 days.
