ebrary Academic Complete

Alternative Titles

A growing and changing collection of 110,000+ e-books in many different academic subject areas, ebrary Academic Complete includes mainly secondary works from university presses and other academic publishers first published in recent decades, but also selected classic works dating as far back as William Harvey's Circulation of the Blood, originally published in 1628.  Nearly all works are in the English language, though some are in other European languages (German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch).

Laptop/Desktop Computers:  You will need Adobe Digital Editions to download ebooks to your laptop or desktop. This free software is different from Adobe Reader.  A free Adobe ID is also required to transfer the ebook to another device. It is NOT required to read ebooks on a laptop or desktop computer.

Mobile Access:  ebrary is retiring its dedicated mobile app as of August 4, 2014. You can now use Bluefire. To download the Bluefire app visit the App Store (http://links.proquest.mkt5049.com/ctt?kn=2&ms=NDY0ODMyNjAS1&r=MzU0Njg3NDY5MTUS1&b=0&j=NDgyMjA5MTg2S0&mt=1&rt=0) or Google Play (http://links.proquest.mkt5049.com/ctt?kn=3&ms=NDY0ODMyNjAS1&r=MzU0Njg3NDY5MTUS1&b=0&j=NDgyMjA5MTg2S0&mt=1&rt=0).

Printing/Downloading:  Printing and downloading from most of these books is limited to a maximum of "up to 60 pages" per book, or less--the page number limit for printing and downloading varies from book to book, and may be as low as 10 pages. For information on whether or not a book is downloadable and how many pages are available for copying and/or printing, look at the individual ebook's detail page.

Accessibility Mode:  For users with accessibility issues, ebrary supports Accessibility Mode.  The Accessibility Mode page describes how to turn on Accessibility mode and how the operations change when you use Accessibility mode.  For information on Accessibility Mode go to:  http://site.ebrary.com/lib/umich/help.action   and search for:  accessibility.  

Enabling the Screen Reader for the Visually Impaired:  The ebrary QuickView reader display does not include documents text that can be read by screen readers (such as JAWS). This is true even if you have selected accessibility mode.  To enable the screen reader access for QuickView, the library needs to request access on your behalf.  If you need ebrary access for a screen reader, please contact Pam MacKintosh (pmackin@umich.edu).  She will contact ebrary to request screen reader access for you. After ebrary support staff has modified your account, log in with your user name.  When you choose to display a document in QuickView, the document content becomes available to the screen reader and can be traversed with the screen reader commands you are accustomed to.
