Panitza Library maintains a comprehensive collection of e-books that are available to AUBG faculty, students, and staff. Currently, we are subscribed to two collections, specifically designed for academic libraries, provided by the leading companies ProQuest and EBSCO.
The e-books are included in the Library catalog and are fully searchable. They can be downloaded for a borrowing period of up to 14 days. To do this, you need to access an Ebook Central personal account and download the free Adobe Digital Editions software. It is compatible with all mobile devices.
What is your “Ebook Central personal account”?
Once on the Ebook Central webpage look at the top-right corner of the screen and click on the Sign In button. You will be asked to enter your personal credentials.
For Username, type the 10-digit barcode from the back of your AUBG ID card. Example: 2288996655
For Password, enter “AUBG” plus the same 10-digit barcode (14 symbols in total). Example: AUBG2288996655
Note – all spaces have to be removed.
What is the ‘Personal Ebook Central Account’ used for?
Once you’re signed in, you will be able to:
download a book
prepare to use the Mobile App
export complete title lists
save titles to your bookshelf
highlight important information, etc.
Note, most personal preference information (such as citation choice and language) is stored as a “cookie” on the computer itself.
If you experience any access problems or have additional questions about ProQuest Ebook Central, please contact Gergana Atanasova.
