What is the Online Library?
The Online Library is a new platform from Beuth Verlag for reading and working with eBooks. This way, you can use the content online wherever you are, especially on mobile devices.
How do I get to the Online Library?
You can access the Online Library via your personal myBeuth-Profile on the Beuth website.
If you don’t yet have a myBeuth profile, this will be created for you automatically as soon as you first purchase an electronic product. At the same time access to the Online Library will be enabled.
Use the link “Your Online Library” for an overview of all the publications you can access in the Online Library.
You can also go directly to your eBooks. In the download information you can also open the publication directly in the Online Library viewer.
What functions does the Online Library offer?
The Viewer lets you read the eBooks in the Online Library. It has numerous useful functions, including a full-text search, zoom, various display formats and the notes function, making it also ideal for use on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.
Can I integrate my old/already purchased eBooks in the Online Library?
Unfortunately not. At the moment only newly purchased eBooks can be used.
What is new about the eBook ordering process?
Basically, ordering is just as easy as it always has been from the Beuth webshop. After making your purchase, you will be informed that your publication is now in your personal myBeuth account and ready to download. There will also be a link to the Online Library.
Can I use an eBook as a multi-user licence in the Online Library?
eBooks or eBook packages can also be purchased as multi-user licences. You can tell whether an eBook has a multi-user licence option if you see the following:
Do you want to purchase a multi-user licence but can’t find it in the web shop? Please contact our Customer Service directly.
What needs to be considered when ordering a multi-user licence?
You need to have a MyBeuth account to order a multi-user licence via the Beuth webshop. This is why you first need to register if you do not yet have a user account. Once you have registered you can order the multi-user licence via your MyBeuth account.
You only have access to multi-user licences via the Online Libary; you cannot download pdfs.
How does access to the multi-user licence work?
When you purchase a multi-user licence you will be given a new user name and password. Depending on how many work stations you have purchased licences for, more than one user can use these access data to access documents in the Online Library at the same time.
eBooks or eBook packages can also be accessed using an IP address. If you wish to purchase a multi-user licence based on your IP address, please contact our Customer Service directly.
What are eBook packages?
eBook packages are pre-selected compilations of publications on a certain subject. You can see which publications are included in the package by going to the relevant product page.
eBook packages can only be accessed via the Online Library; you cannot download pdfs. eBook packages can also be purchased as multi-user licences.
What is the difference between the Beuth Mediathek and the Online Library?
The Online Libary is your virtual bookshelf. It contains all the publications listed, in unabridged form, just like a printed book or the pdf version.
The Beuth Mediathek stores extra resources that are relevant to your Beuth publications and can be directly downloaded. These may be additional texts, pdfs and/or flash, video and audio materials, depending on which publications you have bought from Beuth.
