Books24x7 Linking Issues

Links to Books24x7 in your classroom not working?
Getting an error message saying that you must log in through your library?

Try this workaround:

  1. Go to the Books24x7 main page and log in, if prompted. This will set a Books24x7 cookie in your browser.
  2. Now the links to Books24x7 in your classroom should work.
  3. Repeat this process if you get a Books24x7 error message again later.


To report the issue:

  • Students: 
    Please report the issue to your instructor.
  • Faculty: 
    Please report the issue to your Program Chair.
  • Program Chairs:
    Please submit an Equella service request (program chairs only) to get broken links fixed (unless the broken link is under eReserves, in which case you should contact ereserves@umuc.edu).  Please be sure to indicate the class number (and section, if applicable), and where in the classroom the broken link can be found.
