I How to purchase ebook titles from EBL

EBL first page

Find title

May appear already as visible if it’s an STL we are purchasing.**

Click on the select box to the left.

Start a new list : you will add one or all books to be purchased onto this list. It will only remain during this time on the site; once you complete the purchase it disappears.

With select box checked, save changes.

Once title (or all titles you need to buy) appears on the list, view list.

Far right : Purchase List.

The default says that we are buying titles without marc records—and that is correct. Submit order

You will soon receive an email confirmation from confirmations@eblib.com with the subject : EBL Acquisition Confirmation

    • If the title is not yet visible to us you have to mark it as visible then in the export pull down menu click on MARC Records (marc8), then GO and download the file. Send this along to Michael and continue with the purchase procedure.


II Item Records for ebook purchases

We add item records to all purchased ebooks. When email confirmation arrives forward it to Michael and include reserve class number and faculty name, if necessary. Ask him to add an item record to this purchase and then forward the message on to Kellam. (Do same without the Kellam part if it’s a non-reserve purchase. )

III Create order record on Millennium

Go to Admin- Settings and choose the special order record template: EBLebook ebook purchase

Enter the price that appears on the email you received and if this is for a reserve class, please also change Order Code 2 to W Rush Reserve. (No need to enter the class info in a notes field—this will just be for running reports about ebook reserves).
