INITIAL SETUP VIA BROWSER:

1. Go to your ebrary site and sign in to your personal ebrary account as usual

  • You’ll need to do this at least once every 90-days to validate use on the mobile app

2. Create an Adobe account if you don’t already have one:

  • If you’ve done full-document downloads on ebrary, you already have one
  • To create an Adobe account

1) Go to https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/membership
2) Click “Create an account”
3) Fill in at least the starred fields…
4) Click “OK”

ON YOUR iOS MOBILE DEVICE:

  • First time use, install the ebrary app using the “App Store” icon
    Once installed, click/tap to open the ebrary app
  • First time signing in to the app, prompted for your Adobe account info
  • You’ll then be prompted for your personal ebrary account username and password.

If your ebrary site uses a standard ebrary sign-in,  you have two choices

1) Use the username and password you usually sign in with
2) Or, use the Facebook Sign-in feature (see below)

If your ebrary site uses a custom sign-in, such as a barcode or signing in via your school’s proxy server, Athens, Shibboleth, Moodle, etc:

You need to use the Facebook Sign-in feature (see below)

Facebook Sign-in option:

First, link your ebrary account to your Facebook account (a one-time setup):

  1. Go to your ebrary site using a browser
  2. Sign in to your ebrary account as usual
  3. Click “My Settings” link at top-right of ebrary screen
  4. Under “Link your account to Facebook“, click “Log In“
  5. On Facebook log-in screen, enter your Facebook credentials, click “Log In“
  6. (Don’t have a Facebook account? Click “Sign up for Facebook” at lower left)

You can then sign in on the mobile app using the “Sign in with Facebook” button and your Facebook credentials.

Important note: The Facebook Sign-in feature does not access or post anything on Facebook accounts, it just takes advantage of users’ Facebook authentication.
