The 2017 collections complement Brill’s HSS 2014, 2015, and 2016 collections, already available to our users on Brill Online and searchable in iDiscover.
The Squire Law Library is also pleased to announce that access has been purchased in perpetuity to the International Law ebook collections, 2014-2017 inclusive.These titles can be also found in iDiscover and currently number 202.
Brill ebooks are available with unlimited concurrency and can be accessed both on and off campus (with a Raven login). You can download or print chapters from the ebooks in PDF format, or read them online. As new 2017 titles are published, they will be added to the Brill ebooks platform and loaded into iDiscover on a monthly basis.
Please contact the ebooks@cambridge team on firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback on Brill ebooks, or if you want to recommend any unowned titles for purchase.
As of January 12th 2017, all ebook content previously hosted on ebrary has moved to Ebook Central. This includes ebooks purchased by ebooks@cambridge and faculty/departmental libraries and ebooks made available through the ebrary DDA scheme funded by the UL.
What will happen to links to ebrary?
Existing links to individual ebooks on ebrary and to the platform itself now redirect seamlessly to Ebook Central. So links within iDiscover, Moodle or other platforms will take you to Ebook Central. We have tested a number of links to confirm this, but please let us know if you find any that are not redirecting correctly.
What if I have saved content within ebrary?
If you had saved anything to your ebrary bookmarks prior to the switch (including favourite ebooks or annotations), you will need to log in to Ebook Central and follow a few simple steps to transfer your bookmarks:
- Access Ebook Central and click ‘Sign in’.
- Log in using Raven.
- Click on ‘Bookshelf’ and you will see the option to ‘Move your ebrary bookshelf’.
- Follow the instructions.
Please let us know if you have any problems transferring bookmarks.
