Admins: PROFILE tab “Status” column definitions

Active” means it is a profile that:

  • Is set as PDA, Loan, or PDA+Loan
  • And it either has no Fund Code associated with it, or it has an active Fund Code associated with it
  • Note, if the overall PDA account is out of funds, all PDA collections will be inactive regardless of the status shown here.  Check the PDA tab to verify the status of the overall PDA account.

Inactive” means it is a profile that:

  • Is set as PDA, Loan, or PDA+Loan
  • And it has a “paused” Fund Code associated with it
    • The Fund Code may have run out of funds and been automatically paused
    • Or, an Admin may have manually set the Fund Code to “Paused”
  • Note, titles in the collection are not discoverable

Notify or <blank> (no status listed) means it is a profile that:

  • Is NOT set as either PDA, Loan, or PDA+Loan
  • It is just a saved search
  • Titles in the collection are not discoverable
  • Fund Code status is irrelevant
  • If “Notify“:
    • It means the search is set to be re-run at some interval (that is, the frequency of re-running the search isn’t zero).  The search will be run at the indicated frequency and email alerts will be sent when new titles match the search criteria.
  • If <blank>:
    • It means the frequency is set to 0 (zero), so the search will not re-run at intervals

Admins: Configuration for basic proxy access

ebrary works well with the following proxy servers when configured properly:

  • EZproxy
  • WAM
  • Squid

Configuration Notes

EZproxy with https URL:  we encourage implementing a security certificate such that https protocol is being used.

Add the following 7 lines to your EZproxy config file
NOTE:  replace XXXXX with your ebrary site name

Option DomainCookieOnly

Title ebrary

URL http://site.ebrary.com/lib/XXXXX

DJ ebrary.com

Find “site.ebrary.com/

Replace “^psite.ebrary.com^/

Option Cookie

Then comment out or remove any previous configs for ebrary and restart your EZproxy server

EZproxy with http URL:

Although not a recommended practice, contact support@ebrary.com if you choose to implement the non-secure http access

Add the following 5 lines to your EZproxy config file
NOTE:  replace XXXXX with your ebrary site name

Title ebrary

URL http://site.ebrary.com/lib/XXXXX

DJ ebrary.com

Find “site.ebrary.com/

Replace “^psite.ebrary.com^/

Then comment out or remove any previous configs for ebrary and restart your EZproxy server

The above EZproxy information is for basic proxy access, if you are instead interested in EZproxy Single Sign On (SSO), see:

http://support.ebrary.com/kb/ezproxy-sso/

WAM proxy:

Contact support@ebrary.com so we can configure for http access

Add this line to your WAM configuration to ensure the links on your ebrary landing page can be used by remote users.   Your WAM foreward table entry should be:

*.ebrary.com

If you don’t use wildcards, you can specify each domain:

corp.ebrary.com

www.ebrary.com

RPA sign in is not fully compatible with IE 10 (Internet Explorer version 10)

RPA is ebrary Remote Patron Authorization, and is used on some ebrary sites for off-campus access as well as for signing in to personal ebrary accounts.

How to know if your ebrary site uses RPA:

  • If your ebrary site sign-in screen does not say “Please sign in to your personal ebrary account” at the top, but does direct you to support@ebrary.com if there are sign in problems, it’s likely RPA.

Known issues with RPA when used with the browser IE 10:

  • On some systems, once you sign in, it will not show that you are signed in.  Try clicking on the “Sign In” link again – it may then show you as signed in.

Admins: The presence of journal issues in ebrary

Although ebrary does not intentionally acquire titles other than e-books, some publishers occasionally send us journal issues (particularly special issues on a single topic) that they have assigned ISBNs to, and with metadata indicating that the document type=Book.  (We do not accept any titles without an ISBN.)

Of the entire ebrary holdings as of March 2013, less than 1% (.9%) are journal issues.  Of the titles in the Academic Complete subscription collection, .3% are journal issues (<1%).
