Q. How do I access my electronic bookshelf directly?
You can go to eBrary directly: http://site.ebrary.com/lib/allegheny/search.action
From this screen you can do a search on eBrary using author, title or keywords. You don't have to sign in if you are on campus.
If you want to use the bookshelf functions to get to your preferred titles quickly, you need to use the "Sign In" option in the upper right of the screen. Use your Allegheny email user id (e.g. bobama) and password. Once you are signed in you can access and build your bookshelf, annotate books, etc.
