Register for a MyLE Account (create a Personal User Account)

Register for a MyLE Account in order to:

  • create course-related or personal bookshelves
  • save simple and advanced searches
  • load saved advanced searches and customise them
  • generate timelines from saved searches and save these
  • Contributors to the LE: in addition to the above, they can access and manage additional functions. See Contributors FAQ.
  • Librarians in Subscribing Institutions: they can create a personal user account, to which we will give subscriber admin privileges. In addition to the above, they will be able to view relevant access statistics for their subscribing institution.

There are three categories of personal users:

  1. Institutional subscribers (students, academic staff, librarians) who wish to create a Personal User Account in order to benefit from the added features of the LE listed above, and/or other specific privileges (see above, Librarians). IMPORTANT: please use your institutional email address when you create your personal account, in order to benefit from free subscriber access.
  2. Individual (personal) subscribers, who are not part of a subscribing institution, but wish to access the resources offered by the LE. They need to create a Personal User Account by filling the form below, then purchase a monthly or annual subscription as directed in the pages that follow registration. Click HERE for more information.
  3. Contributors to the LE (authors who have written articles for us, or contributed other content - translations, author chronologies etc.), who have free access to the Encyclopedia. If you have agreed to write for the LE but have not yet registered for your Personal User Account, please follow the procedure described here: How to Create a Contributor Account.

Data Protection: We abhor unsolicited mail and guarantee that none of your personal information, including your email address, will ever be passed by us to any other person or agency. You can login to your own account and delete all or part of your information at any time.

Account Security: Your credit card information will not be known to us and not stored by us. The entry of credit card information occurs inside the secure servers of PayPal (and our own server is in any case secure).

Account Renewal: Your account will expire at the end of the subscription period. Our members' accounts do not renew automatically so you will not be charged for any further period unless you visit this site and renew your subscription.
