Accessing an Ebook Central ebook

How do I access an ebook from Ebook Central?

Ebook Central titles are available through OneSearch to all current UWA staff and students. If accessing from off campus you will be prompted to sign in using the UWA SSO.

A title's availability as an ebook is indicated by Available Online in the item details. Access the ebook by:

  • Selecting the Ebook Central link in the Full text availability section in the book’s OneSearch record. The ebook will open in a new tab.
  • Select the Read Online button. This will open the ebook.
  • After the ebook has been open for a short time, you may be prompted to check out the book to continue to read the book online.
  • You will be returned to the book and can continue reading the book online.
If you choose to download the book to your device most titles are available for 1 or 7 day loans; many titles are available for 1 to 365 days. More information about ebooks at UWA is available in our ebook guide.
