    Question

    What does my library need to do when adding a ProQuest Ebook Central database?

    Answer

    In order to ensure that patrons can access ebook content from your A-to-Z list, Summon, 360 Link, etc., use the following steps:

    1. Search by provider, ProQuest Ebooks, to find your desired database.
    2. Navigate to the Database Details page for the database.
    3. Click on Edit.
    4. In the Custom URL field, enter the custom URL you use to access the database using all lower-case letters. For example, your library's URL will be http://ebookcentral.proquest.com/lib/xxxxxxxxxx, where "xxxxxx" will be substituted by your library's Site ID for ProQuest Ebooks.

    5. Check the Display In checkboxes for all of the services in which you want the database to appear.

    6. Click on Save.

    7. Contact Support using the Support Portal to request setting up title-level links. In your request, please include the following:

    • Database name
    • Your ProQuest Ebook Central Custom URL
