ebrary content has moved to Ebook Central

ebc-logo

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.
