Setting up your ebrary account Before using this App to search for, read, or download books, you must first either sign in with your ebrary username and password, use a nuetral email ID and passcode or use the Facebook sign-in method.

To sign in with your ebrary username and password: 1. In the ebrary App, go to Settings, then tap ebrary (under Accounts), and enter your ebrary username and password. 2. Tap Sign In. If your ebrary username and password aren’t recognized, it may be that your ebrary site uses a custom sign in, and you’ll need to use the Facebook sign-in (see next page). If you don’t have an account you can create one for free.

To create your ebrary account: 1. Access your regular ebrary site with a web browser. 2. Click the “Sign In” link at the upper-right of the ebrary screen. If the page doesn’t say “Please sign in to your personal ebrary account”, then your ebrary site has a custom sign in, and you’ll need to use the Facebook sign-in (see next page). 3. Click “Create an account” and follow the prompts. 4. Return to Settings in the ebrary App, tap ebrary (under Accounts), and enter your new username and password.

If you have any questions or are unsure of your library custom login, please contact your librarian.

Pairing you ebrary account with your device In addition to using your ebrary login or your Facebook ID you can pair your device with your ebrary account through an email address. This method enables you to use a neutral email account on your device when your ebrary ID is obscured by a proxy server and if Facebook login is not available. Using an email ID secures your account in the event of loss or theft of the device(s) by requiring a passcode entry for each new session. The passcode is a simple alphanumeric key of 4 or more characters. The passcode can be reset at any time through your ebrary account as long as your paired email address is still active.

To pair your account with your device using an email address: 1. Using your browser access your ebrary account as you normally would. 2. Navigate to the M ySettings page and click the M obile Setup button under the heading: Connect your m obile devices to your ebrary account. 3. You will be asked to enter an email ID. Ebrary will send a link to this email ID to request a passcode. The combination of email ID and passcode will be used to login to each of your mobile devices (up to 7) . 4. Be sure to stay logged in to your ebrary account while waiting for the email message. Normally the email arrives within 2-­‐3 minutes – sooner depending on your email service. 5. The link in the email will lead you back to the ebrary site with a simple double entry dialog box. Enter at least 4 alphanumeric characters to set your passcode. This code will be used frequently on your devices to establish a secure link to your ebrary account.

Using your email ID to login to your device: 1. After you have established the email ID and passcode. 2. Download the app (if you haven’t already) to your device and open it. 3. On the login screen push the email/passcode button. 4. Enter your email and passcode and begin to browse your ebrary content.

To sign-in using Facebook: If you are having problems signing in because your ebrary site uses a custom sign in, you can use the Facebook sign-in instead. Important: Using Facebook to sign in to ebrary does not give anyone access to any of your Facebook information, and Facebook cannot see what you search for or read with ebrary. Signing in to ebrary with Facebook simply confirms that your account has access to ebrary. Associate your personal ebrary account with Facebook: 1. Access your regular ebrary site with a web browser and sign in to your personal ebrary account as usual. 2. Click the “My Settings” link at the upper-right of the ebrary screen. 3. Click the “Login” button for Facebook and follow the prompts.

Now you’re ready to sign in to the ebrary App using Facebook: 4. Return to Settings in the ebrary App, tap ebrary (under Accounts), and then tap “Sign in with Facebook.” 5. Follow the prompts.

Setting up your Adobe account If you want to download PDF files that are encrypted with Adobe’s Digital Editions® technology, you must sign in with your Adobe ID and password. If you don’t have an Adobe account, you can create one for free. 1. In the ebrary App, go to Settings, then tap Adobe ID (under Accounts) to display the Adobe sign-in screen. 2. If you already have an Adobe ID and password, enter them and tap Authorize.

If you don’t, tap “create one” to go to the Adobe website, and follow the prompts to create your Adobe ID and password. 3. When you are done, return to the Adobe Authentication screen in the ebrary App, enter your Adobe username and password, then tap Authorize to sign in.
