To create a personal ebrary account

1. Go to your ebrary site

  • Don’t know the URL for your ebrary site? Check your library’s website.

2. Click the “Sign In” link at the top right

  • If a window appears stating “You will be redirected to your institution’s Sign In page”, then your site uses a custom login – contact your librarian!

3. Click the “Create Account” button to lower left.

4. Follow the prompts to set up your account

  • Your email address will be your username
  • Special character restrictions:
    • Email / username
      • Alpha-numeric:  A-Z,  a-z,  0-9
        • Capitalization: it won’t affect your ability to sign in, but if you try to later reset your username or password, you’ll need to use exactly the same capitalization.
      • Also okay:  ‘   .   –   @   _
      • Not: spaces, other special characters, or diacritics such as é
    • Password
      • Minimum 8 characters
      • Alpha-numeric okay:  A-Z,  a-z,  0-9
        • As always with passwords, capitalization matters!
      • Also okay:  ~  @  #  ^  $  &  *  (  )  –  _  +  =  {  }  |  ,  .  ?  [  ]
      • Not: spaces, other special characters, or diacritics such as é
