Weekly eBooks on EBSCOhost (formerly NetLibrary) Update #2 - EZ Proxy Single Sign On

from EBSCO:

This week's tip about eBooks on EBSCOhost is about authentication. Effective with the transtition of eBooks from NetLibrary to EBSCOhost , on or near July 1, please note that EZ Proxy single sign on will no longer be an authentication option.

However, EBSCO offers a wide variety of authentication methods, from ID/PW, IP Address, Patron ID, Referring URL, Athens and Shibboleth, etc., any of which can be set up by administrators with access to EBSCOadmin. If you need assistance setting up a new authentication method, please use the support form linked below and we will be happy to help you.

Weekly eBooks on EBSCOhost (formerly NetLibrary) Update #1 -- Statistics

from EBSCO:

We hope that you are enjoying the preview of eBooks on EBSCOhost, and recognize that there is a lot of new information to absorb. To ensure a smooth transition from NetLibrary to eBooks on EBSCOhost, we plan to send you a weekly update every Friday, designed to tell you the most important things you need to know before the final transition from NetLibrary to EBSCOhost takes place on or near July 1.

This week's tip is about your eBooks statistics on NetLibrary. Note that your NetLibrary statistics will NOT be carried over to eBooks on EBSCOhost, which means that you will need to download them before the transition is completed.

EBSCOhost offers a sophisticated array of statistics gathering formats, allowing administrators to pick and choose fields, timeframes and delivery methods using EBSCOadmin.
