Ebrary Academic Complete Collection

Logon to Ebrary Academic Complete Collection


The Academic Complete Collection is a growing collection of e-books spanning all subject areas. It includes more than 70,000 multidisciplinary titles. The majority of titles are published in 2004 or later.

Mobile Access

Many of the eBooks provided on Ebrary are available for download to personal devices for a period of 14 days. Whilst viewing a book click the "download" button in the centre of the menu bar. Detailed instructions are available on Ebrary’s support website.  For some titles only one chapter can be downloaded, this will be indicated on the download page of the relevant book.

An Ebrary app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android. This app provides optimised access to the Ebrary eBooks under the same terms - 14 days loan or permanent download of one chapter. Setup instructions are available on the Ebrary support site. To use the app you need to sign into Ebrary via the internet using a web browser, then select settings and choose the "link to Facebook account", this will then enable you to use the app on your mobile device. You will also need to create an Adobe account, and the instructions for this are on the Setup instructions page. There is a known problem with the Android app not recognising Facebook accounts but the following work around does work:

1. Uninstall the Updates to Facebook or Uninstall Facebook completely from the device.

2. Try to sign back into Ebrary using the Facebook login.

If you need more guidance with this then please contact library@le.ac.uk
