What is MyiLibrary?

MyiLibrary is a platform that provides desktop access to eBooks. eBooks are electronic versions of printed books and, in most cases, are an exact duplication of the printed book. eBooks can be viewed online from any PC connected to the Internet, browsed for quick research and reference, or read online any time of day or night.

While a wide range of research, reference, and reading materials are available from the service, our subscription only includes titles from AMACOM books, IGI Global, New Strategist, and Oxford University Press. More titles and publishers will likely be added at a later date.

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

Enter MyiLibrary using the link above, or from one of the many MyiLibrary links we've loaded into our Library Catalog. If you are off-campus, you will be asked for your UTEID and password before being taken to the MyiLibrary site. Once you enter the service, you will not be required to enter additional account info to use the ebooks.

You can search for books using either the quick search or by following the link to the advanced search. You can also browse lists of books by subject or publisher.

You may wish to sign up for a free account with MyiLibrary (simply use the link for [Sign up for an account] once you reach the service). With this account, you can save searches and titles for later use, as well as set up email alerts. There is no charge for this account.

If you use a MyiLibrary links that we've loaded in the Library Catalog, you will be taken directly to the book linked to in that record.

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

MyiLibrary can be accessed using a standard Internet browser. The Safari browser is recommended for Mac users. MyiLibrary provides ebooks in Adobe PDF format so in order to view eBooks online, you will need to ensure that you have the correct version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer (version 6.0.2 or higher for Windows or 7.0 for Mac).

Can I download ebooks to my hand held device (like my phone, my Kindle, my Sony Reader)?

No. Our subscription is not enabled for downloading ebooks at this time. You will not be able to use a personal ebooks reader, such as the Kindle, to read our ebooks. They are only available through a web browser.

Can I print from MyiLibrary? Can I copy and paste from MyiLibrary?

Yes, within the copyright restrictions of the title, you can print chapters, sections or pages you wish to use for your research. Publishers and copyright owners determine how much of any particular document can be copied or printed. Your eBook may also be displayed page by page; therefore, you will not be able to save the entire eBook in one go.

What if I still need help?

For additional help using MyiLibrary, please see MyiLibrary Help, get help from a librarian at Ask a Librarian, or contact Paul Rascoe in the PCL Reference and Information Services department for additional troubleshooting assistance at prascoe@uts.cc.utexas.edu or 512-495-4262.
