What is my ebrary channel?

Every CUNY campus has a unique channel name that is used in the URLs that reference your ebrary content. This channel name is also used in the EZproxy setup to enable it to work with ebrary's "Single Sign On" authentication method.

Below is a snippet of a MARC file from the CUNY-wide ebrary collection. You will see the unique channel name within the URLs that point to ebrary resources in the CUNY library catalog:

Below is an example ebrary URL referring to a single title:
http://site.ebrary.com/lib/yorkcol/Doc?id=10173866

The channel name for your school can be found in the portion of the above URLs between "/lib/" and "/Doc?...". In this example, yorkcol is the channel name for York College.

Please contact OLS through the CUNY Service Desk with a work order if you experience connectivity or other technical problems related to ebrary.
