The older “Java-based Reader” is still offered on some sites as an alternative for online-reading

To open a book for online reading, we recommend clicking on its title or cover.

However, if your ebrary site happens to also offer ebrary’s older stand-alone reader, the “Java-based Reader” (aka the Unity Reader), and you wish to use it, click the “Java-based Reader” button instead; it is located below the book in search results.
