Recovering Your Ebook Central Bookshelf

On August 1, 2021, the library will transition ProQuest Ebook Central to a new authentication system. This means that you will have a new bookshelf. However, you can retrieve your previous bookshelf:

Before August 1:

  • Log into ProQuest eBook Central.
  • Go to Settings > Profile.
  • Copy what you see under the email/username field.
  • Save this username for future use

After August 1:

  • To retrieve your previous bookshelf, submit a case to ProQuest Ebook Support.
  • Include your previous Ebook Central username and your new Ebook Central username (follow the steps above to retrieve your new username).
  • If you didn't save your previous username before August 1, you can include some book titles saved to your previous bookshelf to help them make the match.
