An EBSCO account must be created, and logged into, in order to use the folder option to save articles found while searching EBSCO databases.
To create a personal account:
1. Log into an EBSCO database (If unsure, use Academic Search Complete.)
2. Click on the Sign In link in the blue band at the top of the page.
3. Click on Create an Account in the log in box:
5. Click Save Changes. Your personal account is created!
Using the Folder
To collect articles and save to your folder while searching in an EBSCO database, click on folder, then click on the link "Sign into my EBSCOhost."
Once you have logged into your account, click on New Search and conduct your database search.
To save articles of interest to your folder, click the Folder Icon to the right of the entry. The icon will change from blue to yellow. Notice also that your folder icon at the top of the page will change from empty to filled.
To view the articles saved to your folder, click the Folder icon at the top of the page.
You can print, e-mail, save, or export many results all at the same time using the Tools in the right column. If you have signed in via My EBSCOhost, any search results that you collect in your folder will be automatically saved at the end of the session.
