Ebrary Ebooks have recently changed to Proquest Ebook Central.

To access over 130,000 books online go to:

(how you login to a PC in GMIT).

If you previously had an Ebrary bookshelf, you will need to go through the following steps to migrate the contents.
  • Upon accessing Proquest Ebook Central, click “Bookshelf” in the top right corner.
  • Click “Get Started”. In the top right corner, sign in using your old ebrary username and password.
  • Your bookshelf will then be transferred to Proquest Ebook Central and you should get the following message: “We moved your ebrary bookshelf to Ebook Central”.
You will no longer need a separate username and password to add items to your bookshelf. Simply add them and they will be retained, as long as you are accessing Proquest Ebook Central from the library website.
