Accessing an EBL eBook

How do I access an eBook from Ebook Central?

Ebook Central titles are available through OneSearch to all current UWA staff and students for free. To gain access to Ebook Central 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 "Available Online" listing in the item details. Access the eBook by:

  • Selecting the Ebook Central link in the 'View Online' tab in the individual items. The eBook will open in a new window.
  • Select the 'Read Online' button.  This will open the eBook.
  • After the eBook has been open for a short time, you will be informed 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
