When you login to ProQuest Ebook Central using OpenAthens, a unique OpenAthens numeric identifier tied to your Notre Dame login is passed to Ebook Central. This is used to create a new Ebook Central account linked to your university login.

An Ebook Central account allows you to:

  • download entire books for a limited time (depending on publisher restrictions)
  • make annotations
  • create a personal bookshelf
  • keep track of your downloads, loans and saved books

If you have an existing Ebook Central account and bookshelf, you are able retrieve your old bookshelf and import it into your new account created through OpenAthens. See the following ProQuest Support article for instructions:
