Ebook Collections: E-book problems

This guide highlights a range of ebook collections, giving details on the content of the collections, and how to use them

De Gruyter

What's the problem?

De Gruyter e-books platform is not recognising the University of St Andrews sign in.  After signing in at the single sign on it looks like you don't have access to an e-book title, when in fact you do.  From the e-book table of contents you will see "Access restricted" for each chapter entry.

What's the solution?

  • Search for the e-book on Library search, and click the eBook button
  • If presented with the single sign on screen, login with your username and password
  • At the De Gruyter e-book page click the Log in button near the top right
  • In the Find your institution box on the left enter University of St Andrews and click Find
  • From the results click University of St Andrews Scotland and allow the screen to refresh
  • On the right of the screen click the Login button next to University of St Andrews
  • Select the contents tab - you should now have access to the e-book contents.
