Setting up Single Sign On

Repeat sign on requests and remembering multiple passwords can be a hassle. Single Sign On reduces the frustration of signing in to each website individually. You can link your Educational Ebooks account to each publisher’s portal so you only need to remember your school email and password. Once the accounts are linked, you have established Single Sign On.

If you are a NEW USER with the Publisher, follow these instructions:

  1. Register a new account with the Publisher by following the link that appears in the pop up. 
  2. Once you have created an account, enter your Email Address and Password. 
  3. Select ‘Link Account’ to link with Educational Ebooks. 
  4. When inside the publisher’s portal, you MUST enter your Activation Code to view your eBook. Your Activation Code is provided by the publisher to ensure the correct eBook is accessed.

If you are an EXISTING USER, follow these instructions:

  1. Enter Email Address and Password for the Publisher’s portal. 
  2. Select ‘Link Account’. 
  3. When inside the publisher’s portal, you MUST enter your Activation Code to view your eBook. Your Activation Code is provided by the publisher to ensure the correct eBook is accessed.

NOTE: Single Sign On can be used for Interactive eBooks only, not eBooks in Protected PDF format.

What is the difference between an Interactive eBook and Protected PDF eBook?

An Interactive eBook is accessed via the publisher’s portal, using unique Activation Codes. They are accessible online, while some may be available to access both online and offline.

Activation Codes are unique codes provided by the publisher to ensure the correct eBook is accessed. Each publisher has different instructions for accessing Interactive eBooks. Once your eBook appears in your Educational Ebooks account, you will be given instructions on how to access the eBook.

A Protected PDF eBook is a static version of the original book with the same layout and visual formatting. The text does not adjust to fit the screen of the device or computer you are using to read the book. However, you can zoom in on a page or graphic.

The formats depend on availability from the publisher. Ebooks have limitations on printing, copying and sharing. These eBooks usually have an expiry, these settings are determined by the publisher.

Due to restrictions placed by Publishers, generally Protected PDF and Interactive eBooks cannot be printed.

Accessing eBooks in Second Hand textbooks

If you have purchased a second hand textbook, you may be wondering if the eBook component is still accessible. This depends on restrictions placed by the publisher. Some eBooks cannot be reused once they have been activated by the previous owner.

However, you can access the eBook again by purchasing a ‘Reactivation eBook’. Reactivations eBooks can be purchased at a reduced cost through Lilydale Books. The following publishers have Reactivation eBooks currently available to purchase: Cambridge University Press, Jacaranda (StudyOn) and Pearson (Heinemann). All available Reactivation eBooks are available to buy here.

To access your ‘Reactivation eBook’, follow the same instructions above to access eBooks via Educational Ebooks. Remember to have your second hand textbook handy, as you will be asked to provide information relating to the book.

How can I check if the eBook has been accessed?

Currently these publishers allow you to check if the eBook has been accessed by the previous owner:

Australia in international politics

Author: Stewart Firth

The world changed for Australia after the terrorist attacks on the US on September 11, 2001 and the Bali bombings of 2002. Security became the dominant theme of Australian foreign policy. Australian military forces remained in Afghanistan years later, opposing the terrorist threat of the Taliban, while hundreds of Australian troops and police worked with public servants to build the state in Asia-Pacific countries such as East Timor and Solomon Islands.
