How can I set my institution's EBSCO eBooks to bypass the detailed record and open in the eBook Viewer?

Using EBSCOadmin, you can set the eBook Viewer to be the default option when a user clicks an eBook title in their search results. When you choose this setting, users bypass the detailed record screen for an eBook and instead the eBook opens in the eBook Viewer.

Please note: It can take up to 24 hours for this change to take effect in your EBSCO eBook profiles.

To change the preferred format for title link setting:

  1. Log into EBSCOadmin at

  2. From the Choose Profile drop-down menu, select the profile that includes your EBSCO eBook collection.
