IMO Publishing is pleased to confirm that the new, browser-based IMO Bookshelf service launched, as planned, on 1 May 2022.
Now, any new e-reader purchases will be for use with the new IMO Bookshelf service, so there is nothing to download and you will normally have access to you publications when they log into your New IMO Bookshelf within 30 minutes of the IMRF Bookshop assigns the purchase to your account.
As always the IMRF Bookshop will send you the login credentials, which are created by the Virtual Publications website, when your first new purchases to your IMO IMO Publishing account from 1 May 2022. You will also need the URL of the new IMO Bookshelf service, which is www.imobookshelf.org.
Migration of your existing purchases to the new service may only take place once you already have purchased an E-Reader from 1 May 2022 onwards.
To enable the migration process, please send the IMRF Bookshop the migration form. Once the migration form is completed, please return it to us by email@example.com. Once this has been done, we will forward the form to firstname.lastname@example.org, where the migration request will be logged before onward transmission to their technical service provider, Witherbys, who will liaise with the you to effect the migration.
In order to migrate to be successful, please make sure that your old Windows-Based IMO Bookshelf is updated to 5.13.
For more information, including user support documents, migration forms and videos, please go to the dedicated distributor IMO Bookshelf web page and the customer IMO Bookshelf Web Page.
Remember! Any E-Reader or E-Book you purchase as of 1 May 2022 will work only with the new IMO Bookshelf and cannot be activated in the Windows-based IMO Bookshelf software!

An E-Reader (EBK file) can only be read through the IMO Bookshelf Software.
One licence (read: 1 E-Reader) gives you 2 "copies" to download on different devices if you wish, or use the second "copy" as a spare in case something happens to your computer.
Since December 2019 the IMO Bookshelf Software now allows you to uninstall your e-reader from your computer and install it on another computer (don't forget to reinstall the IMO Bookshelf software on the other computer as well, of course). This gives you more freedom and there is less chance you have to use your second copy, and could even been given to a colleague.
Important: You must uninstall the license from the old computer before attempting to reinstall it on another computer!
NB: You may print 10% of the text (approx. a chapter) at a time from a single title with a maximum of 75 pages per day across all titles.
