What is EBL?

EBL (Ebook Library) is a platform for e-books offering titles in a wide range of subjects featuring content from hundreds of publishers. Content is updated weekly.

Why do I see a UTEID screen even though I'm on campus?

Because EBL access is licensed for current students, staff, faculty, and library visitors of the University of Texas at Austin, we need to confirm your status regardless of whether you are on or off campus.

How do I access an ebook? Do I need an account to access EBL?

Select EBL from the Libraries Databases list, or follow links to EBL books from search results in the Library Catalog or library databases.

You will be asked for your UTEID and password before being taken to the EBL site. Once you enter EBL, you will not be required to enter additional account information to use the ebooks.

Do I need special software or hardware to read ebooks online?

EBL can be accessed using a standard Internet browser. The Safari browser is recommended for Mac users. EBL provides ebooks in Adobe PDF format, so in order to view EBL ebooks online, you will need the correct version of Adobe Reader installed on your computer. EBL works best with Acrobat Reader version 9 or later. If you download Adobe Reader 8, you will also need to download Adobe Digital Edition - Flash Player.

Can I download ebooks to my phone, e-book reader or tablet?

Yes, please see the EBL Download & Mobile information page for details on how to download ebooks.

Can I print from EBL?

Yes, please see the EBL Print, Copy & URLs information page for details on how to print pages from ebooks.

What if I still need help?

For additional help using EBL, select the Help/Feedback tab at the upper right of the EBL interface or see the EBL Libguide. You may also Ask a Librarian, or contact Paul Rascoe for additional troubleshooting assistance at prascoe@austin.utexas.edu or 512-495-4262.
